ART Event | Documenting the Black Art Experience with Kaila Austin

Documenting the Black Art Experience with Kaila Austin

Event Description

Artist David Driscoll said that we will be defined by our culture more than any inventions we might create, and as such we must document the work of Black artists. In 1976 artist Samella Lewis created Black Art: An International Quarterly, now the International Review of African American Art. It was among the first journals, created by Blacks documenting African American Art. This panel will explore the importance of scholarly documentation of the work of Black artists and the Black art canon. Our panelist will discuss how we are documenting, critiquing and recording the work created across the diaspora today.

Panelists:

Patricia Andrews-Keenan, Founder, Pigment International and Black Fine Art Month

Dr. Kelli Morgan, Curator, Indianapolis
