The program is realized thanks to the generous support of Valeria Napoleone ** and is produced by Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.

TALK
Ashley James, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum, joins Tomashi Jackson to discuss abstraction and color theory as vehicles for explorations of social histories—past and present, contemporary black art practices, and art school efficacy. Tomashi Jackson’s multi-disciplinary practice explores color as a vehicle for complex historic and contemporary narratives embedded in abstraction.
