Art & Conversation: Art and Race Matters
Join the Zoom webinar at pam.to/AC or view it live on our Facebook page
Join our Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art, Grace Kook-Anderson, in a discussion about Art and Race Matters: The Career of Robert Colescott. This exhibition is the first full retrospective of one of America’s most compelling and controversial artists, as Colescott’s work continues to be mired in controversy because of both Colescott’s blunt, aggressive—even crude—gestural painting style and his provocatively transgressive examinations of race and gender. The work’s relevance, and challenging nature leave us much to consider in this month’s talk.
The Portland Art Museum is pleased to offer accommodations to ensure that our programs are accessible and inclusive. All spaces for this program are accessible by wheelchair. Assistive listening devices are also available for lectures. All restrooms have accessible stalls but no power doors. There are single-stall all-gender bathrooms available. Please ask staff for directions.
We will do our best to accommodate your needs when you arrive, however, we need 2-3 weeks advance notice for some specific requests. Please email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 503-226-2811.
