Contemporary Black Artists to Speak at Georgia Museum of Art

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will present a panel discussion by artists with work on display in the museum at 7 p.m. on March 23. The event is in conjunction with the exhibition “Expanding Tradition: Selections from the Larry D. and Brenda A. Th... on view through May 7, and is free and open to the public. The exhibition consists entirely of work by African American artists, both contemporary and historical.
Shawnya Harris, the museum’s Larry D. and Brenda A. Thompson Curator of African American and African Diasporic Art and curator of the exhibition, will lead the panel alongside artists from the exhibition. Artists participating include Amalia Amaki, Carl Christian, Gregory Coates, Kevin Cole, Stefanie Jackson, Preston Sampson and Freddie Styles.
Harris said, “We wanted to take the opportunity to speak with many of the living artists in the exhibition and highlight their personal histories and inspiration.”
The panel will discuss how the artists’ creative processes relate to the idea of “tradition” in contemporary art and culture. Artists will discuss how tradition affects their work, personal stories and the materials they use to create art.
