Keynote: From Absence to Unseen

Ken Gonzales-Day

Friday, November 01 - 7:00PM to 8:30PM
de Saisset Museum Auditorium

Gonzales-Day will discuss his work beginning with his widely-sited Erased Lynching series and publication, "Lynching in The West: 1850-1935" (Duke, 2006), and then proceed to his contribution to the recent exhibition "Unseen: Our Past in a New Light: Ken Gonzales-Day and Titus Kaphar" held at the National Portrait Gallery, of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., in 2018-19. The talk will foreground three conceptual themes that run through much of his work (absence, distance, and naming) and consider their impact in shaping his research, teaching, and studio practice.
