Exhibition Walkthrough: Head Back and High

Join Art + Practice for a walkthrough of Head Back and High: Senga Nengudi, Performance Objects (1976-2017), led by Cecilia Wichmann, The Baltimore Museum of Art’s Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art. Wichmann will discuss the exhibition, which brings together performance photographs and video from Nengudi’s breakthrough moment of the mid-1970s with extraordinary examples of her most recent work in sculpture, exploring the ethics of friendship and collective creation that has infused Nengudi’s artistic practice across her career.

Organized by the California African American Museum (CAAM) and Art + Practice (A+P), The Fundamentals of Art Collecting is the second program in the Points of Access series aimed at offering meaningful dialogues about our access to and understanding of contemporary art. In four public programs, CAAM and A+P welcome artists, collectors, curators, and museum administrators to discuss their diverse paths on how they have navigated the art world at each point in their careers. The series is designed for individuals at all levels of familiarity with contemporary art; no prior knowledge is required and all are welcome. Speakers include Charlie James, Alitash Kebede, and Gianna and Demetrio Kerrison. Moderated by Melanie Edmunds, Senior Gallery Partnerships Manager at Artsy.
