Organized on the occasion of Maren Hassinger: Monuments, this program features an intimate conversation between exhibiting artist Maren Hassinger and Lowery Stokes Sims, Curator Emerita for the Museum of Arts and Design and 2000–2007 Director and President of The Studio Museum in Harlem. Following the conversation, guests are invited to participate in an iteration of Hassinger’s collaborative performance, Women’s Work. Hassinger will also lead a walkthrough of Monuments to reflect on the sculptures on view.
This edition of The Artist’s Voice is presented in partnership with BOMB Magazine’s Oral History Project, a series of interviews that documents and preserves the life stories of visual artists of African descent in New York City.
