Virtual Roundtable: Writing in Space with Aruna D'Souza

Thursday, April 8, 2021

6–7:30 pm

Online

Aruna D'Souza, writer, critic, and co-curator of our special exhibition Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And, hosts an evening of readings and conversation in honor of the publication of Lorraine O’Grady: Writing in Space, 1973–2019. Explore the entwined practices of art and writing as artists Chloë Bass, Jarrett Ernest, and more reflect on the writings of conceptual artist Lorraine O’Grady, who for more than forty years has explored the complex relationship between text and image. Each participant focuses on a different text in the anthology, which includes statements, scripts, interviews, and previously unpublished notes spanning the evolution of O’Grady’s performance work and conceptual photography, as well as her many published critical essays on art, music, and culture.
