Online, via Zoom
For the past four decades, Dawoud Bey has worked to expand upon what photography can be and the subjects and themes it can address. For this Walter Annenberg Lecture, Bey speaks with Adam D. Weinberg, the Museum’s Alice Pratt Brown Director, about his work, the history of American photography relevant to his own practice, and his ongoing engagement with Black history and memory.
This event is free but registration is required.
In honor of the late Walter H. Annenberg—philanthropist, patron of the arts, and former ambassador—the Whitney Museum of American Art established the Walter Annenberg Annual Lecture to advance this country’s understanding of its art and culture. Support for this lecture and for public programs at the Whitney Museum is provided, in part, by GRoW @ Annenberg, a philanthropic initiative led by Gregory Annenberg Weingarten, a Vice President and Director of the Annenberg Foundation; the Stavros Niarchos Foundation; the Barker Welfare Foundation; and by members of the Whitney’s Education Committee.
