Central Virginia Arts Lecture This Sunday at Moton

Posted on March 31st, 2017 by staff

Coming up on Sunday, April 2, 2017, Central Virginia Arts will sponsor a lecture, Post Modern African American Art by Art Historian, Amanda Dalla Villa Adams

In this discussion of late 20th- through 21st-century African American art from the VMFA’s permanent collection, learn what it means to view art and how can we discover new things when properly looking at a work of art. Our discussion begins with simply looking. Then we will explore influences, such as race, gender, or context, as well as technique and subject matter in the work of Kehinde Wiley, Julie Mehretu, Martin Puryear, Lorna Simpson, Kara Walker, Allison Saar, Renée Stout, and Robert Pruitt.

Amanda Dalla Villa Adams is a current doctoral student in art history at Virginia Commonwealth University, received her BFA in sculpture from VCU, and her MA in art history from the University of Cincinnati.

The lecture will be held at 3 p.m. at the Moton Museum in Farmville and is free and open to the public.
