Explore the work of contemporary African American artists and their predecessors with Chichi Lovett.  Chichi will use works of art created by African American artists to explore issues around race, culture, the art market and feminism (among other things), that these pieces can instigate. Take the time to look at this art and consider what it represents to you. Learn about the context of the art and artist in their own time and in ours.  Art and artists discussed will include works by Lorna Simpson, Gordon Parks, Mickalene Thomas and Carrie Mae Weems.  (The artists and their work in this class will be different from those discussed in the previous class Chichi offered during the summer. The first class is not a prerequisite for this class.)

Garnetta ‘Chichi’ Lovett is a native Brooklynite, visual artist (BFA), retired professor (Auburn University) and community arts advocate and organizer. She currently lives in Washington DC.
