Sandford Biggers & Christa Clarke in conversation at Tufts

  • Alumnae Lounge, Aidekman Arts Center 40 Talbot Avenue Medford, MA, 02155 United States (map)

Exhibiting artist Sanford Biggers will speak with Christa Clarke, Independent Curator/Scholar, Arts of Global Africa, and Affiliate, Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, Harvard University. Free and open to all.

The conversation is held in conjunction with the Tufts University Art Galleries exhibition "Sanford Biggers" on view 8 October–15 December in the Tisch Family Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center/Medford. Sanford Biggers is the first exhibition focused on his BAM series, begun in 2015, in which the artist seeks to memorialize and honor unarmed black victims of police gun violence in America. Through video, sculpture, and textiles, he brings to light the pain these acts have perpetrated upon society, but also points to the wider human condition and a desire to transcend.
