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 special edition of In Conversation takes place at Art + Practice in Leimert Park and brings together artists ruby onyinyechi amanze, Meleko Mokgosi, Duhirwe Rushemeza, and Sherin Guirguis with exhibition curator Dexter Wimberly on the occasion of the opening of “The Ease of Fiction.” The exhibition at the California African American Museum (CAAM) presents the work of these four African artists living in the United States as the foundation of a critical discussion about history, fact, and fiction. Through a conversation about the exhibition’s themes and the artists’ works the panelists will uncover shared trajectories among their diverse practices.
California African American Museum (CAAM) explores the art, history, and culture of African Americans. Chartered by the State of California in 1977, the museum began formal operations in 1981 and is a state-supported agency and a Smithsonian Affiliate. In addition to presenting exhibitions and public programs, CAAM houses a permanent collection of more than four thousand works of art, artifacts, and historical documents, and a publicly accessible research library containing more than twenty thousand volumes.
