The Images We Want to See: “Implicit Tensions” Artist Panel
On the occasion of the second iteration of Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now, artists featured in the exhibition—Lyle Ashton Harris and Paul Mpagi Sepuya—gather at the museum to discuss their work and the show’s themes, including the construction of identity through self-portraiture, affirmation of community through photographic representation, and conception of art as a vehicle for social advocacy. The conversation will be moderated by Robert Reid-Pharr, a scholar in the field of race and sexuality studies and Professor of Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard University.
This program is part of the Elaine Terner Cooper Education Fund Conversations with Contemporary Artists series.
$15, $10 members, Free students with RSVP. Ticket includes same-day museum admission. Same-day admission tickets may be presented at the door for free entry to the event as space allows.
