Professor of art + design Gretchen Sinnett presents "Stereotypes and Visibility: Addressing Histories of Oppression in American Art." Professor Sinnett will explore the work of African American and Native American artists who tackle stereotyping and histories of oppression in their work. These artists include Kara Walker, Betye Saar, Dread Scott and James Luna. This tradition is demonstrated in the work of our current Winfisky Gallery artist, James Montford.
This lecture will take place in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Room in the Ellison Campus Center.
