Digital Talk » State of the Art 2020: Historical Fiction

Join Crystal Bridges Associate Curator, Contemporary Art Alejo Benedetti along with State of the Art 2020 featured artists Mari Hernandez, Jordan Seaberry, and David R. Harper for a virtual conversation! Artists will tune in to discuss their work, especially as it relates to themes of history. While frequently presented as a strictly factual record of the past, in reality we know it to be a story that flattens, simplifies, and recasts according to the person recording it. This panel will center around ideas related to the constructedness of history, the pitfalls of memory, and the ways that a selection of contemporary artists are pointing to the fiction underlying how we talk about the past. Register through Zoom to interact and ask questions, or tune in through Facebook Live to watch.

Free, with registration via Zoom meeting. Register Here!
