Clark Art Hosts Roundtable on Blackness
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute's Research and Academic Program (RAP) presents an MCLA Artist Lab Roundtable on Blackness as a Multifaceted Experience and Giving Artists an Opportunity to Interpret the World on Their Own Terms on Thursday, May 12 at 5:30 pm.
The event is free and is presented live in the Clark's auditorium.
Caroline Fowler, Starr Director of the Clark's Research and Academic Program (RAP), joins a conversation with Conrad Egyir, a Ghanaian artist whose figurative narratives of the African Diaspora blend religious and West African folk iconography with domestic scenes; Joshua AM Ross, a multidisciplinary artist with a research-based practice grounded in archival experiences of photography; and Nathaniel Donnett, a multidisciplinary cultural practitioner whose work engages with the poetics of the everyday and socio-political and cultural concerns.
The participants were all in residence in North Adams in 2021–22 as part of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' (MCLA) Artist Lab Residency program.
Prior to the roundtable, attendees are invited to join a reception in the Manton Reading Room at 5 pm.
