Artist Talk l Photographer Renee Cox
Renee Cox’s photographs—frequently self-portraits—explore issues related to the representation and exploitation of Black bodies while seeking to create new positive imagery. We are delighted to have three works by the photographer Renee Cox join the Museum’s collections: Hott-en-Tott (1994), The Liberation of Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben (1998), and The Signing (2018). Join us to hear from the award-winning artist about these images and the contexts that inform them. Cox’s talk will be followed by a conversation with Katherine Bussard, the Museum’s Peter C. Bunnell Curator of Photography.
