Wednesday, January 30, 4:30 p.m.
San Francisco-based writer, visual artist, performer, teacher, and curator D. Scot Miller is a seminal figure in the Afro-Surrealist movement. His book AfroSurreal Manifesto: Black is the New Black is generally considered the preeminent text in framing Afro-Surrealism. Miller's talk is in conjunction with Marvelous Freedom: Vigilance of Desire, Revisited, a group exhibition between SAIC and Columbia College. The exhibition explores artmaking through an Afro-Surrealist lens, and re-examines Marvelous Freedom/Vigilance of Desire, which took place in Chicago in 1976 and was the first and largest Afro-Surrealist exhibition in the country at the time. The exhibition will run through March 15 at the Arcade Gallery, 618 South Michigan Avenue. For more information contact Multicultural Affairs at email@example.com.
