Unraveling the Threads of Resistance

November 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for the biannual Edward M. and Hermione C. Friend Lecture, featuring exhibiting artist Katrina Andry, whose work is highlighted in the exhibition, Nappy Roots: A Transatlantic Story of Hair, Struggle, and Liberation.

A native of New Orleans, Katrina Andry is celebrated for her compelling art that challenges race and gender biases and compels viewers to reflect on their societal impact. During this special event, Andry will be in conversation with Jade Powers, the BMA’s Hugh Kaul Curator of Contemporary Art. Together, they will delve into insights about Andry’s work, artistic methods, and personal experiences.

Don’t miss this chance to engage with one of the top 50 printmakers, as recognized by Art in Print magazine, and explore the transformative power of art in addressing pressing social issues.

Established in 2004 by Ellen and Fred Elsas in loving memory of Ellen’s late parents, the Edward M. and Hermione C. Friend Lecture continues its tradition of hosting impactful events, alternating years in collaboration with UAB.
