September 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Elektra KB, Karen J. Revis, and David Platzker, in conversation with Assembly Room
This is precisely the time when artists go to work. — Toni Morrison
The year 2020 is among the most pivotal in recent American history, and we have seen how outrage can be channeled into both political action and artistic practice.
In this program, join artists Elektra KB and Karen Revis, featured in Living in America, along with Assembly Room and independent curator David Platzker, in conversation about print’s long-standing relationship with protest and our most significant historical moments.
Elektra KB is a Brooklyn-based Latinx immigrant artist whose interdisciplinary practice investigates gender, transculturality, disability, and abuses of power. Karen J. Revis is a New York-based artist whose series REVISionary Prints explores her experience growing up in the Black community and celebrates leaders throughout African-American history.
David Platzker, Director of Specific Object and former Curator of Drawings and Prints, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, has worked extensively on prints, posters, and artists’ publications of the 1960s and 1970s, and those that grow out of that era. The talk will be moderated by Assembly Room, curator of Living in America.
This is the first in a series of four conversations held in conjunction with Living in America.
This Zoom webinar is free and open to the public. Live captioning will be available. The event will be recorded and made available online. Feel free to send questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
