In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the art exhibition that would come to be known as the birth of the Impressionist Movement, the Wildenstein Plattner Institute is hosting a series of webinars, “Women of the Impressionist Circle,” throughout 2024.
As the WPI prepares the next installment of Paul Gauguin’s catalogue raisonné, we are excited to present our next webinar series, Grappling with Gauguin. Bringing together curators and scholars from institutions in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, and Denmark, this international series will address how to make space for diverse perspectives and critical discourse related to this important artist.
This webinar series presents the work of a range of Bearden’s contemporaries which provides greater insight regarding the cultural and racial milieu. These fellow artists, who came from diverse racial backgrounds, likewise felt the call to respond to the tenor of the times and tackle Black subject matter and/or racial themes in their work. The series will expand our understanding of how racial concerns were articulated during this watershed decade.

A conversation dedicated to the lesser-studied sphere of Romare Bearden’s art making: his public art. In his later career, he translated his iconic collage making practice into larger-than-life ceramic, mosaic and painted murals displayed in salient communal spaces around New York, Charlotte, Baltimore and more. Oftentimes, these works served as an initial meeting ground, introducing Bearden to the general public.
