What’s the role artists in communities?
Join the Durham Art Guild for another “Art for Greater Good” panel discussion on Thursday, April 13, 7 to 8:30 p.m. inside the Reed Building at American Tobacco Campus (318 Blackwell St.). The discussion is part of a series of compelling dialogues brought to you by the Durham Art Guild’s Member Services Committee.
The discussion, which will take place within the “Black On Black” exhibition inside American Tobacco Campus, will discuss issues like the following:
- Identify ways artists can and have been activators in the community
- Describe how artists can become more comfortable in the role of being thought leaders
- Discuss the appropriateness of certain artists telling certain stories (i.e. the current discussion surrounding the Whitney Museum of American Art’s “Biennial” and last year’s controversy at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis)
The artists offering their insights are part of the “Black On Black” exhibition, and they will reference their works throughout the conversation. The artists are Dare Coulter, Carrie Nobles, André Leon Gray and William Paul Thomas.
