For the Love of Art: Valerie Cassel Oliver and the Intersection of Art and Activism

  • Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Leslie Cheek Theater 200 N Boulevard Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

Join Valerie Cassel Oliver and Chioke I’Anson for a discussion on the groundbreaking, multidisciplinary artist Howardena Pindell. The conversation will explore how Pindell has moved between figurative and abstract painting in an effort to assert her place as an African American woman in the field of contemporary art. The conversation will also explore Pindell’s work as a curator, educator, and activist, who has sought to challenge traditions of the art world and its barriers to artists of color.
