The Poetics of Portraiture

ONLINE ONLY


This is a past event


How can photography investigate and liberate the visual language of Black identities? In this conversation, Glen Wilson moderates a conversation with April Banks, Duane Paul and Rikkí Wright to discuss their diverse, emancipatory work that focuses on portraiture. These four Los Angeles-based artists offer individual and collective acts of refusal and reimagination to map freedom in public and private spaces. This is the second of four talks complementing the forthcoming exhibition Photo Flux: Unshuttering LA.
