Distinguished Lecture Series Featuring Fred Wilson
The Gibbes Museum of Art is pleased to announce that renowned artist Fred Wilson will be the keynote speaker at the museum's annual Distinguished Lecture Series, taking place at Charleston Music Hall on Wednesday, November 13.
Since his groundbreaking and historically significant exhibition Mining the Museum (1992) at the Maryland Historical Society, Wilson continues to use cultural products to address issues of racism and erasure as the subject of many solo exhibitions. The artist's most recent body of work, an exhibition entitled Afro Kismet, was originally produced for the Istanbul Biennial in the Fall of 2017 and subsequently shown in New York and Los Angeles. Afro Kismet will open at the Gibbes Museum of Art in the Spring of 2020.
Event sponsors include former Gibbes board member and philanthropist Esther Ferguson, Bank of America, Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust, Lynch Cracraft Wealth Management of Raymond James, and the City of Charleston.
