Joshua Rashaad McFadden: Come to Selfhood
Tuesday, November 15
ICI Curatorial Hub
401 Broadway, Suite 1620
FREE and open to the public
Artist Joshua Rashaad McFadden joins writer Jordan G. Teicher for a conversation about politics, race and identity.
The discussion will focus on the various roots of McFadden’s practice seen through his Selfhood series, placing the artist’s work in the context of others who have influenced him, including Hank Willis Thomas, Lyle Ashton Harris and Deborah Willis. Teicher and McFadden will also discuss several other works including Colorism, a series of works that explore the historical relationship between skin tone and power; After Selma, which finds connections between the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery and today’s civil rights movement; and Come to Selfhood, McFadden’s International Photography Award-winning book investigating black masculinity through juxtaposed images and personal reflections on intergenerational familial relationships.
