Society Gallery Talk with Kelli Morgan and Bryn Jackson

Society Gallery Talk with Kelli Morgan and Bryn Jackson
2 pm

Join curators Kelli Morgan, Associate Curator of American Art and Bryn Jackson, Assistant Curator of Audience Engagement and Performance, for a talk on Samuel Levi Jones - Left of Center. This exhibition is the first major museum survey of works by the Indiana native. Jones provides striking visual commentary on the duplicitous and oppressive nature of American power structures. The exhibited works particularly examine how injustices pervade systems of education, criminal justice, healthcare, and the American historical narrative more broadly. Left of Center offers an in-depth look at how Jones’s deconstruction of biased sets of encyclopedias, law books, medical texts, and football equipment manifest extraordinary abstract paintings and sculptures.
