Join us for a moderated discussion with artist LaToya M. Hobbs and two scholars about her series of prints Carving Out Time. These life-size woodcuts depict one day in Hobbs’s life with her family, unfolding over five scenes. The series makes a powerful statement about her influences and self-fashioning as an artist, and are featured in the special exhibition LaToya M. Hobbs: It’s Time, on view at the Harvard Art Museums from March 1 to July 21, 2024.
