In this edition of The Artist's Voice, Trenton Doyle Hancock and Stanley Whitney will discuss Hancock's drawings, collages and works on paper on view in Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing. Moderated by Lauren Haynes, Associate Curator, Permanent Collection, this conversation will explore the scope of this exhibition in relation to broader cultural concerns, and unpack the roles of performance, mythology and narrative in Hancock's practice. Following the discussion will be a question and answer segment.
This program is free with Museum admission, which is a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. RSVP to email@example.com to pre-register; however, all seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
