Narrative Materiality: Dawoud Bey and Torkwase Dyson in conversation 

Thurs, July 8, 2021
6 pm

Online, via Zoom

On the occasion of Dawoud Bey: An American Project, photographer Dawoud Bey speaks in dialogue with interdisciplinary artist Torkwase Dyson about the intersections of their artistic practices. In her essay for the exhibition catalogue, Two American Projects, Dyson asks of their shared concerns, “How do we invent new aesthetic forms that are imbued with radical ancestorship and that address our insistence on liberated spatial practice?” Dyson and Bey will speak to these ideas and their ongoing dialogue about materiality and narrative.

The conversation is moderated by Elisabeth Sherman, assistant curator and co-curator of Dawoud Bey: An American Project.
