Amy Sherald

Conversations with Artists

March 29, 2018, 6:30 pm

University of Maryland David C. Driskell Center

Through her portraits, Amy Sherald explores the ways people construct and perform their identities in response to political, social, and cultural expectations. Her work offers a critical view of African American cultural history and the representation of the African American body. Known for using a grayscale palette to paint skin tones, Sherald challenges the concept of color-as-race. Sherald will be in conversation with Dorothy Kosinski, Director of The Phillips Collection. 

Note: This conversation will take place at the David C. Driskell Center, located on campus at the University of Maryland in College Park.
