Artist Talk, Ron Tarver: An Overdue Conversation With My Father

February 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Ron Tarver, Hello Darling, 2017

Artist Ron Tarver will be joined by Ksenia Nouril, our Jensen Bryan Curator, to discuss Ron’s exhibition An Overdue Conversation With My Father, now on view as part of the 94th ANNUAL Solo Shows. Tarver reimagines the African American experience in the U.S. under Jim Crow, interpreted through the lens of his father Richard Tarver, a photographer who captured this community in Fort Gibson, OK during the 1940s and 50s. Looking back at his father’s archive and appropriating its imagery, Tarver reworked them to reflect on the history of the tight-knit African American community in Fort Gibson, re-presenting its triumphs and tribulations.

This event is free and open to the public.
