Affinity Group Virtual Talk: Currents and Constellations: Black Art in Focus

Wednesday, March 23, 2022, 6:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual Event

About The Event

Join Key Jo Lee, director of academic affairs and associate curator of special projects, for a virtual talk on her exhibition Currents and Constellations: Black Art in Focus, on view now in the Julia and Larry Pollock Focus Gallery through June 26.

Currents and Constellations: Black Art in Focus puts art from the CMA’s permanent collection in conversation with a vanguard of emerging and mid-career Black artists, as each explores the fundaments of art making, embracing and challenging art history. The exhibition includes works by Sanford Biggers, Elizabeth Catlett, Richard Hunt, Dawoud Bey, Lorna Simpson, Jack Whitten, Darius Steward, Kenturah Davis, Mario Moore, and Torkwase Dyson, among others—thus placing Black American art and artists at the center of a conversation about the relevance of art to life and the relevance of art history to contemporary artists.

Contemporary Art Society and Friends of African and African American Art members will receive a digital invitation.
