Columbia Global Centers | Paris
Join us for a roundtable discussion on multiculturalism in today's art world. This lively conversation will focus on the place that African Diaspora art holds in the international market, as well as the place of the artist who both lives in Western society and belongs to this Diaspora.
Panelists: Nigel Freeman, director of the African-American Fine Art department at Swann Auction Galleries, NY; Catherine St. John, Doctor of Arts and expert on Beauford Delaney's oeuvre; and André Delpuech, conservateur en chef du patrimoine, chargé des collections Amériques at the Musée du quai Branly.
This event is part of Resonance of Form and Vibration of Color, a special exhibition at the Paris Center featuring previously unavailable works by artist Beauford Delaney. Organized by Les Amis de Beauford Delaney and the Wells International Foundation, in collaboration with Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the exhibition Delaney's work for a new generation, situating the artist at a crucial moment of mid-twentieth century art, when Abstract Expressionism was becoming mainstream. Displayed are dozens of Delaney's works, brought together from Paris collections. Up until now, these works were previously unknown to general American and European audiences.
