Virtual Art History Happy Hour: Dindga McCannon and Black Feminist Legacies

Thursday, December 3, 2020

6–7 pm

Online

Engage with Black feminist legacies that are explored in our special exhibition Out of Place: A Feminist Look at the Collection through two fun, informative talks. Artist Dindga McCannon offers a close look at her 1971 artwork Revolutionary Sister. Then, Jenée-Daria Strand, Curatorial Assistant, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, highlights how key works in the exhibition connect to one another in their relationships to the mainstream art world (often existing outside it), with a focus on the domestic sphere. Followed by a live audience Q&A with Jenée-Daria Strand.

This program is free to stream on Facebook Live. Or, register and pay what you wish to join us on Zoom, and participate in a Q&A with the speakers after the talks. Your contribution supports our dynamic public programs and events.
