2018 Symposium | “Bringing Forward the Past: Art, Identity, and the American South”
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16 - SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2018
Panel 1: "Place in Contemporary Practice"
This panel explores the ways that personal histories have shaped the artistic practices of two Mississippi-born artists, McArthur Binion and Noah Saterstrom. Using the Mississippi landscape and its literary precedents as the backdrop of the conversation, this panel looks at how drawing on memories of a place expands upon contemporary readings of identity, memory, history, and even myth. Moderated by Museum Curator Elizabeth Abston | Panelists include McArthur Binion and Noah Saterstrom.
