Podcast Lounge Conversation

Leigh Raiford, Associate Professor of African American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, will be in conversation with gallerist Michael Rosenfeld to discuss Michael Rosenfeld Gallery’s curated presentation of artists exhibited in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983. The gallery’s booth presentation at UNTITLED, ART San Francisco will include works by such seminal artists as Frank Bowling, Ed Clark, Sam Gilliam, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Betye Saar, and William T. Williams, among others. The conversation will range in topics, from the prominence of abstraction in Soul of a Nation, the place of Africa in African American art, and the gallery’s long history exhibiting Black artists as well as the "discovery" of many older Black artists in today’s contemporary artworld. James Voorhies, Chair, Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, California College of the Arts, will moderate the conversation.
