Tune in Thursday, October 14, at 7:00 p.m. ET for a live discussion with Emory Douglas, artist, designer, and resident Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 to the 1980s; Akili Tommasino, Associate Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Esther Adler, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA.
In conjunction with MoMA’s forthcoming installation of newly acquired copies of the Black Panther newspaper, artist and graphic designer Emory Douglas will participate in a range of digital programs on moma.org. Douglas’s work will also be featured at the Museum in a new collection presentation this fall. Douglas created many of the most recognizable images associated with the Black Panther Party, and facilitated their distribution to a broad readership through this popular publication. In addition to this live-stream discussion, he will also hold a workshop with emerging artists as part of MoMA’s Art and Practice series, moderated by Professor Colette Gaiter, on Wednesday, November 3.
