What does it mean to redefine the (art) landscape?

Join curator Mary Schneider Enriquez and Ph.D. candidate Chassidy Winestock for a conversation reflecting on works by Howardena Pindell, Kara Walker, and Kerry James Marshall. Revisiting works in the Harvard Art Museums collections, they will look with fresh eyes, informed by the contemporary moment, at questions of race and representation and the ways these artists have put pressure on museum spaces and the broader landscape of the art world.

Mary Schneider Enriquez., Houghton Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums

Chassidy Winestock, Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History of Art and Architecture and former graduate intern in the Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
