Online, via Zoom

December 15, 12 pm

Join Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow Bentley Brown for a virtual tour of In the Balance: Between Painting and Sculpture, 1965–1985.

The thirty-minute session will introduce the exhibition through a discussion of highlights from the show in context. Participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat for a fifteen-minute Q&A following the talk.

Bentley Brown is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, doctoral student at The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, and adjunct professor of art history at Fordham University. His scholarship explores the pioneering role of Black artists and Black creative spaces within New York City’s downtown contemporary art movements of the late 1960s through the mid 1980s.  He holds a master's degree in African Studies from University College London and his artistic practice uses the mediums of canvas, found objects, photo-collage and film to explore themes of Black identity, cosmology, and American interculturalism.
