Richard J. Powell, the John Spencer Bassett Professor of Art and Art History at Duke University, draws on his curatorial experience and extensive research to chat about African American art and culture in the NCMA collection. Powell has written on topics ranging from primitivism to postmodernism, and his insights offer opportunities to reflect on work by African American artists and to place their work within the context of the broader Museum collection.
Discussion continues over a lunch catered by Iris, the Museum Restaurant. To register, for more information, or for special dietary requests, call (919) 664-6785. Registration and payment required by 4 pm on Wednesday, March 30.
