Artist Gary Simmons joins cultural historian Henry Louis Gates, Jr., for a conversation on narrating history, imagined communities, and the power of art to shape identity.

Since the late 1960s Seminars with Artists has provided a forum for intimate conversations with some of the most notable American artists of the day. This spring, the series takes its cue from works on view in the Museum and engages questions of site specificity, space, and place, broadly defined.
