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.

This public program has been postponed. A+P, Lynette and Naomi are all still very keen on hosting the event at a later date and are actively rescheduling. Please check back here for updates and follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

Join A+P for an intimate conversation between artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and curator Naomi Beckwith. Beckwith organized Yiadom-Boakye’s first solo show Any Number of Preoccupations at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 2010. The two women will sit down and reflect on their respective careers and artistic development in the ten years since they first began working together. Yiadom-Boakye will shed some light on her two works Carpal Tunneller and Every Choice Available on display in Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection.

The Free Black Women’s Library Los Angeles will be present before the program (from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.) offering access to a selection of books their founder has chosen to complement A+P’s exhibition and tonight’s event. 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.

Note: Reserving a ticket does not guarantee entry. If we reach capacity, we cannot let more people in. We recommend arriving early and enjoying the Free Black Women’s Library before the event.
