Breaking the Canon: Collecting African American Art

Thursday, March 16, 2017

6:30 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Mission-driven collector Pamela Joyner is changing the game when it comes to collecting works by African American artists. In honor of her practice and our Fund for African American Art, we celebrate Joyner and her contributions to the field through a series of rapid-fire conversations between curator Rujeko Hockley and artists Simone Leigh, Hugo McCloud, Julie Mehretu, and Jack Whitten. The artists talk about pre-1945 works by African American artists that have influenced their practice today.

Tickets are $25; $20 for Members.

Presented in conjunction with our annual Fund for African American Art benefit, honoring Pamela J. Joyner.

Part of A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum.
