Conversation, (Inter)sections

Henry “Sam” Chauncey, Jr., and Brian Orozco
Thursday, May 17, 2018, 1:30 pm

Join Brian Orozco, ES ’18 and a Nancy Horton Bartels Scholar Intern in the Programs Department, and Henry “Sam” Chauncey, Jr., a prominent local figure and longtime Yale University administrator, for a conversation on artist Barkley Hendricks’s APB’s (Afro-Parisian Brothers) of 1978 and the courtroom sketches by portraitist Robert Templeton documenting the New Haven Black Panther Trials of 1970–71. This program is part of the series 1968: Fifty Years Later, which sheds light on the ways artists, institutions, and viewers responded to the tumultuous political climate of 1968, both locally and globally. Situated in the spaces of the Gallery and calling on our many voices, this series asks how we continue to challenge our roles as receivers and also as producers of cultural knowledge, 50 years after the events of 1968.

Featuring artists, students, scholars, and community members, (Inter)sections is a series of programs that promotes interdisciplinary dialogue and engages the Gallery’s expansive collection, offering a unique blend of perspectives on culture, identity, and power to critically reflect on the human experience.

Space is limited. Please meet in the Gallery lobby.
