Dawoud Bey Lectures at Aperture Tues. Feb 19

Dawoud is one of my favorite people ever. For those who have been fortunate enough to spend some time in a class listening to him, they have left the room feeling empowered. What Dawoud understands about portraits is like what a physicist knows about sub-atomic particles.
Here’s your chance to listen too. He’ll be talking with his friend and artist, Carrie Mae Weems (who is also quite a speaker herself) in conjunction with his exhibition and book Class Pictures. Show up and bring questions.

    Thanks for the tip off on this. It is one of the best artist lectures/artist conversations that I have attended. Both Dawoud and Carrie Mae expressed themselves articulately and together, generated a compelling dialog.

    Good to hear. Wish I could hear it.
    Hopefully someone will start Podcasts of these sorts of things soon.
