Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington | In Conversation: Sandy Williams IV & Jamelle Bouie

By Editorial Team on January 9, 2023
Sandy Williams IV, Dreams II, 2022 from the 40 ACRES Archive
Talk: Friday, January 13 at 6pm

Join artist Sandy Williams IV and Jamelle Bouie, writer and New York Times opinion columnist, for a conversation centered on Williams’ ongoing project the 40 ACRES Archive. Through work that includes archival research, text, video, performance, photographs, permanent historical markers, and the staging of events, the 40 ACRES Archive grapples with the failures of Reconstruction and the way those failures shape contemporary American life and politics, especially through persistent racial inequality. Work from the 40 ACRES Archive is currently on view at the Museum as part of Assembly 2022: Time & Attention.

This event is free and takes place at the Museum. Registration is not required.
