Jared Thorne: Every Day Contains All of History
As a black artist investigating the culture of his own people, Jared Thorne seeks to challenge hegemonic as well as self-imposed constructs of Black identity in America and beyond. Thorne’s work centers on issues of race, social class and gender. He engages questions of authenticity, representation, and history, challenging the viewer to redefine his or her relationship to modernity. Recently, he has been exploring the diasporic relationship between America and Africa. Join us as Thorne discusses his work and his new exhibition at the UMKC Gallery of Art, opening October 19.
Presented in partnership with the UMKC Gallery of Art and sponsored by the Bernardin-Haskill Lecture Series and the UMKC Black Studies Program.
