On April 14, we welcome New Haven-based artist Titus Kaphar for a public lecture. The Bowdoin College Museum of Art recently acquired Kaphar’s drawing, The Jerome Project (Asphalt and Chalk) XI, 2015, a triple portrait of Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown, currently on view in To Count Art an Intimate Friend. His lecture will explore the power of reimagining history with an eye on contemporary politics, race and social justice. Kaphar received an MFA from the Yale School of Art, and is the recipient of the distinguished Gwendolyn Knight and Jacob Lawrence Fellowship. His work has been exhibited widely. In 2014, TIME magazine commissioned Kaphar to create an artwork in response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri.
