MCLA Artist Lab Roundtable on Blackness as a multifaceted experience and giving artists an opportunity to interpret the world on their own terms

May 12, 2022, 5:30 PM, Manton Research Center Auditorium

Caroline Fowler, Starr Director of the Research and Academic Program, will be in 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 multi-disciplinary cultural practitioner whose work engages with the poetics of the everyday and socio-political & cultural concerns, all of whom were in residence in North Adams in 2021–22 as part of the MCLA Artist Lab Residency.

Prior to the roundtable, attendees are invited to join a reception in the Manton Reading Room starting at 5 pm.
