Panel Discussion: From Drawings to Sculpture: The Harlem Renaissance to Now

February 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-5

Early 20th-century Black artists primarily depicted portraits of people and daily life as they lived it. Fighting against false narratives, artists of this period strove to show their humanity. Their sacrifice pushed modern art in America to include new voices that included themes of social justice and even some futuristic elements.

Join us for a dynamic conversation with curator Denise Murrell, Merryl H. and James S. Tisch Curator at Large, Metropolitan Museum of Art, to talk about the importance of the Harlem Renaissance and contemporary artists Sanford Biggers, Tschabalala Self, and Coby Kennedy on how their expanding perspectives engages new and existing collectors, as well as public interest and support.

Moderated by:
Savona Bailey-McClain, Executive Director and Chief Curator, West Harlem Art Fund

Panelists:
Sanford Biggers, artist
Coby Kennedy, artist
Denise Murrell, Merryl H. and James S. Tisch Curator at Large, The Metropolitan Museum of Art 
Tschabalala Self, artist

This event is organized by The Drawing Foundation and the West Harlem Art Fund association with Master Drawings New York 2024.
