Conversation with the Artist: Chris Johnson – VIRTUAL

Wednesday, October 14, 2020
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Free for Museum Members

Join us for a conversation between Associate Curator Whitney Richardson and artist Chris Johnson. Opening this week at the Museum, Johnson’s Question Bridge: Black Males explores critically challenging issues within the African American male community by instigating a transmedia conversation among Black men across geographic, economic, generational, educational, and social strata of American society. Question Bridge provides a safe setting for necessary, honest expression and healing dialogue on themes that divide, unite, and puzzle Black males today in the United States. The artist will discuss the origins of this four-year long project before Richardson leads a Q&A session with Johnson and attendees.
