Material Conflict: Tomashi Jackson and Naomi Safran-Hon in Conversation

Event time: 
Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 5:30pm
Yale University Art Gallery See map
1111 Chapel Street
New Haven, CT 06510

Artists Tomashi Jackson (MFA 2016) and Naomi Safran-Hon (MFA 2010) incorporate traditional and nontraditional materials in their artwork to engage in contemporary cultural conflict. The two will hold a conversation moderated by Mark Aronson, Chief Conservator at the Yale Center for British Art, that will probe how the artists’ use of materials in their visually engaging and inventive work relates to themes of political, racial, global, and personal conflict.

This conversation is the keynote for the 2019 Historically Black Colleges and Universities Students and Mentors Institute in Technical Art History (HBCU SMITAH), a week-long workshop hosted by the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University, and generously funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
