ZuCot had two artist talks for our Transcendence exhibition, February 21st and March 14th! The artists gave great insight to how they work and what went into their pieces. We also had wonderful discussion with the audience about the meaning and culture of many of the artworks we have up right now. During the first art talk Alfred Conteh told the audience the next series he is working on, E. Richard Clark surprised us all by joining the other artists in the exhibition for the talk (he can be shy), and Aaron Henderson gave insight into the codes of the African-American Spirituals. The same things were discussed in the second artist talk with some additions to the conversation, and it was so well attended that their was standing room only!
We hope that we will see you next time – we have at least one Artist Talk per exhibition!
