“The Art of Black Study: Tom Lloyd and the Art Workers’ Coalition”

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

In 1969, an open coalition of artists, filmmakers, writers, critics, and museum staff formed in New York City, called the Art Workers’ Coalition (AWC). Its principal aim was to pressure the city’s museums – notably the Museum of Modern Art – into more equitable and inclusive exhibition policies. Krista Thompson, Professor of Art History, Black Studies, and Performance Studies at Northwestern University, will present, “The Art of Black Study: Tom Lloyd and the Art Workers’ Coalition,” a lecture on Tom Lloyd, one of the founding members of the group, and a prominent African American visual artist.
