Profiled: Race and Whiteness in Sculpture from Frederick the Great to Edward Kienholz
Award-winning artist and Scripps College professor Ken Gonzales-Day presents his take on Edward Kienholz's Five Car Stud, juxtaposing Gonzales-Day’s own recent work, which examines how artists construct racial identity. No newcomer to the subject of racial politics, Gonzales-Day’s book, Lynching Photographs: California exposed unknown chapters in the state’s history. There will be a book signing in the Art Catalogues Bookstore (Ahmanson Building, Level 1) immediately following the discussion.
Brown Auditorium | Tickets required—available one hour before program
