Artist Talk & Roundtable with Caitlin Cherry
February 27, 2019
Bowab Black Box Theatre, Smith Center for the Arts
Join us as we welcome Brooklyn-based artist, Caitlin Cherry for an Artist Talk and Scholarly Roundtable on the occasion of her solo exhibition at PCG, Dirtypower.
Artist Caitlin Cherry draws as much from the traditions of art history as from the trailblazing feminist theory authored in this technology-saturated age. A solo exhibition of newly commissioned artworks at Providence College’s Reilly Gallery in the Smith Center for the Arts, Dirtypower merges two of the artist’s recent interests: imagery warped by Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor technology, and the representation of black female bodies in institutions and media. At this event the artist will lecture on the themes of her artistic practice and participate in a discussion on key themes and ideas of her artworks with Providence College faculty and other guest scholars.
Dirtypower is organized by Jamilee Lacy, PC–G Director and Curator. The exhibition, conjunctive programming and fully illustrated publication (forthcoming February 2019) is generously co-supported by Providence College’s Black Studies Program, Center @ Moore Hall, Department of Art & Art History and Women’s Studies Program. Additional funding is provided by The Reilly Gallery Fund, a gift of the late Robert F. Reilly (PC ’42).
