Tonight! Thursday, March 16, 6 pm
Given Auditorium, Bixler Art & Music Center, Colby College
The Colby College Museum of Art and its Lunder Institute for American Art are excited to announce a live conversation between multidisciplinary artist Genevieve Gaignard, a spring 2023 resident fellow at the Lunder Institute for American Art, and Jon Gray, multidisciplinary curator and co-founder of the culinary collective Ghetto Gastro.
As longtime friends and colleagues, Gaignard and Gray each work through their respective practices on “Changing the Conversation,” seeking to shift social and historical narratives around such subjects as race and identity through innovation across mediums.
This conversation, facilitated by Lunder Institute director Erica Wall, brings their two voices together to share how, when, and why the work they do seeks to interrogate and transform the how, when, and why of what we see, do, and say.
Learn how their work helps to expand the discourse around the ways in which the complexity of the American experience, its art, and its culture are evolving, shaping American visual culture and impacting American art.
The Art & series brings together visiting artists, scholars, museum staff, and community experts for conversations about exhibitions, collections, and projects at the Colby College Museum of Art and its Lunder Institute for American Art. A mix of in-person, virtual, and hybrid programs, this series is designed for those interested in learning more about art and engaging with the key issues of our time.
