On the 50th anniversary of African American Studies at Yale, this panel brings together Yale School of Art alumni Howardena Pindell, M.F.A. 1967, Wangechi Mutu, M.F.A. 2000, and Kevin Beasley, M.F.A. 2012, with Courtney J. Martin, Director of the Yale Center for British Art, to reflect on changing perceptions of black visual arts since 1969 and to share views on how to ensure an inclusive global art world for the future.
This program is cosponsored by the Department of African American Studies at Yale University, the Yale School of Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery’s Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
