California-based artist Kota Ezawa’s National Anthem (2018) is a meditation on patriotism and protest. The singlechannel animated video was inspired by the actions of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other football players who took a knee, sat, raised fists, or locked arms during the national anthem to call attention to police brutality against unarmed black men and social injustice. Ezawa (b. 1969, Germany) creates work that explores and translates significant cultural events into simulations that question the authenticity of both our experiences and retold histories.
Join us for a slide-illustrated talk by Michael J. Wilson in honor of National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 22.
Please join us, wherever you are, for this year’s Jazz performance livestreamed from Mickalene Thomas’ East Lobby installation, A Moment's Pleasure. Enjoy the wonderful music of artist Akua Allrich and a post-show conversation with host Jasmine Pope from the comfort of your own home.
