6:30 p.m.
Opening remarks by Museum president and CEO David Mickenberg

6:45 p.m.
Conversation with curators Ash Anderson and Robin Lydenberg and musical artist C. Anthony Bryant
During their thirty-minute discourse, the curators of Strategies of Engagement will talk about their curatorial choices and C. Anthony’ Bryant’s musical selection, which is responding to the exhibition. The three will unpack the ways we are molded and shaped as people based on how we choose to engage with art.

7:15 p.m.
C. Anthony Bryant performance
Mr. Bryant’s repertoire ranges from gospel to classical music. Just as Carrie Mae Weems’s work is layered and textured with social, cultural, political, racial, and historical context, so is Mr. Bryant’s repertoire.



Tonight’s programing is part of our Dynamic Conversations series of discussions.
