Artist Talk | Jared Thorne: Every Day Contains All of History presented by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City MO

Presentation in partnership with the UMKC Art Gallery and sponsored by the Bernardin-Haskill Lecture Series and the UMKC Black Studies Program.

As a black artist investigating the culture of his own people, Jared Thorne seeks to challenge hegemonic as well as self-imposed constructs of Black identity in America and beyond.

Thorne’s work centers on issues of race, social class and gender. He engages questions of authenticity, representation, and history, challenging the viewer to redefine his or her relationship to modernity. Recently, he has been exploring the diasporic relationship between America and Africa. Join us as Thorne
