Join us for an in depth discussion with the curators and artists of Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection, Presented by The Helis Foundation. This event will include a series of solos and duets with Christopher Bedford, Leonardo Drew, Melvin Edwards, Charles Gaines, Katy Siegel and Shinique Smith.
Solidary & Solitary, drawn from The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection, tells the history of art by African American artists from the 1940s to the present moment. Focused primarily on abstract art, this exhibition celebrates the achievement of individual artists, the collective history told by their art, and the social changes that have changed the way we understand art history in the broadest sense.
