Black Artists and Assemblage: From Folk Art to Conceptual Art Practices with Valerie Cassel Oliver

August 31, 2019 | 2:00PM - 3:00PM


Join Valerie Cassel Oliver for a talk that draws upon the history of artists working in assemblage—the use of ordinary objects and their transformation into extraordinary objects of art. Cassel Oliver will discuss the work of Nari Ward within the scope of her newest exhibition, Cosmologies from the Tree of Life and her forthcoming project, The Dirty South: The Southern Impulse in Art, Material and Sonic Culture.
