Artists Roundtable: Art, Activism, and the Black Body

Saturday, April 18, 2015

2–2 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

For many years, the Brooklyn Museum has exhibited works by contemporary artists who have examined how the black body is placed, in social, political, and historical terms. What are activist artists saying now, in light of the recent fatalities of black men and women and subsequent civil unrest? What role do museums have in addressing these issues? Join us for a conversation on the artist’s role in social protest with dissident artist Dread Scott, multimedia artist Rashaad Newsome, Brooklyn-based street artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh,  and Ferguson, Missouri, activist artist Damon Davis.
