A virtual conversation on Romare Bearden’s public art June 13, 2023 at 1:00 pm ET Join us this June for 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.

Webinar Series June 15 to June 29, 2023 at 1:00 pm ET Join us this June for Between the Two: Art and Sexuality in 1960s New York, a webinar series that will explore gender, sexuality and eroticism in the art of early 1960s New York, with a particular focus on ideas and artists circulating around Pop, Performance and Neo-Dada. The series begins from the thesis that the exploration of gender and sexuality was not simply a secondary theme, but a constitutive element of artistic development during this period. Moreover, it seeks to expand on recent scholarship that explores queer, trans, and feminist perspectives in the art of the period and in the art historical approaches to it.
