Join a lively conversation about artists’ intentions, influences, and political and social contexts. Through close looking and conversation, we’ll explore how our understanding of artworks can continue to change years after their making. This session will focus on Faith Ringgold’s American People Series #20, Die (1967), Jasper Johns’s Flag (1954–55), and Francis Bacon’s Painting (1946).

This session is led by Angela Garcia.
