Public Programs

Public programs include individual artist talks, panels, short film screenings, and exhibition walkthroughs. Programs are organized to coincide with museum-curated exhibitions on view at Art + Practice.

Join A+P for an intimate conversation between artist Amy Sherald and the Hammer Museum associate curator Erin Christovale. Sherald’s work is featured in Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection which was curated by Christovale. Sherald and Christovale will discuss topics relating to the evolution of Sherald’s practice, themes present in the exhibition, the importance of figurative painting and portraiture in representation and the ways in which Sherald’s work communicates with other artists in the exhibition. There will be a short question and answer session following their discussion.

In addition, we’re excited to announce the first installment of a collaboration between A+P and The Free Black Women’s Library Los Angeles. The FBWL will be present before the program (from 5:00 p.m. - 6:45 p.m.) offering access to a selection of books their founder has chosen to complement A+P’s exhibition. The books will be available to be viewed and anyone can bring a book written by a Black woman to swap for a book in the library.

This program is organized on the occasion of Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection on view at Art + Practice through August 1, 2020.

Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection is presented by Art + Practice in collaboration with the Hammer Museum and organized by their Associate Curator Erin Christovale.
