Join us on Thurs­day, Feb­ru­ary 18, 2021 at 6 pm to hear from four Stamps School alumni artists fea­tured in the exhi­bi­tion Story, Word, Sound, Sway, on view online and at Stamps Gallery Jan­u­ary 18, 2021 – Feb­ru­ary 282021.

Pan­elists include:

- Sen­g­hor Reid (BFA 99)
- Yvette Rock (MFA 99)
- Wes Tay­lor (BFA 04)
- Eliz­a­beth Young­blood (BFA 73)

Reid, Rock, Tay­lor, and Young­blood will dis­cuss the ways their cre­ative work chal­lenges the sta­tus quo and the role that artists play in break­ing down the walls of oppres­sion and injus­tice. The Stamps Gallery exhi­bi­tion Story, Word, Sound, Sway explores sub­jects of alter­na­tive his­to­ries, Black iden­tity, and sto­ry­telling; mesh­ing per­for­mance and per­for­ma­tiv­ity, and the inter­play of the oral and aural in one’s expe­ri­ence of the world.

This event is co-pre­sented with Stamps Gallery, co-spon­sored by the CEW+ Frances and Syd­ney Lewis Vis­it­ing Lead­ers Fund.
