Join artists Dawoud Bey and An-My Lê in a conversation moderated by Carnegie Museum of Art curator of photography, Dan Leers, on the occasion of the closing weekend of the exhibition An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain. This special virtual event features two photographers who share a connected past and are making some of the most exciting and instantly recognizable images today.
Dawoud Bey began his career as an artist in 1975 with a series of pictures that were exhibited in Harlem in 1979. Most recently, he has turned to landscape with a series entitled Night Coming Tenderly, Black which references the presence of The Underground Railroad in the Cleveland area. An-My Lê makes evocative images that draw on a landscape tradition to address the complexity of war, photographing military training, reenactments, and Hollywood film shoots.
In Conversation Online: Dawoud Bey and An-My Lê will be held virtually on Saturday, January 16 from 12:00 to 1:10 pm. The cost of this event is Pay-What-You-Wish. For more information, visit the In Conversation Online: Dawoud Bey and An-My Lê event page.
