Join us as we welcome Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for our third Scholl Lecture of the season. Jackson-Dumont will highlight her extensive work on and knowledge of artist Kerry James Marshall, gathered while producing the symposium and publication Kerry James Marshall: A Creative Convening. She will detail Marshall’s commitment to presenting powerful and centrally visible Black bodies and his insistence on #blackexcellence while emphasizing the important role of museums as sites to discuss resounding public issues. Kerry James Marshall’s work Campfire Girls, 1995, on loan from the De Ying Foundation, is currently on view as part of collection exhibition The Gift of Art in the second floor Nedra and Ron Kalish Gallery.
Please note: Although we would love to have him, Kerry James Marshall will not be physically present at this discussion.
Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the publication Kerry James Marshall: A Creative Convening, courtesy of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, while supplies last.
