Art in Conversation: Wall to Wall


October 22, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Art in Conversation is a monthly virtual series at the BMA that highlights a work of art and invites visitors to join in the dialogue.

For this edition of Art in Conversation, we will explore the work of indigenous Alaska-based artist, Merritt Johnson. The inaugural iteration of Wall to Wall presented by PNC features four works created by the artist. These works have been constructed into large wall coverings that stretch across the lobby and cafe walls, creating an immersive exhibition experience. Join Emily Hanna, the Curator of the Arts of Africa and the Americas, and Hallie Ringle, Hugh Kaul Curator of Contemporary Art, as they give context to her work and discuss the series of paintings and its relation to Birmingham.
