MCLA Artist LAB ROUNDTABLE at the Clark

Conrad Egyir, Nathaniel Donnett, and Joshua AM Ross

Thursday, May 12, 5:30-6:30pm

From the Clark:

The Research and Academic Program presents an MCLA Artist Lab Roundtable on Blackness as a multifaceted experience and giving artists an opportunity to interpret the world on their own terms.

Caroline Fowler, Starr Director of the Research and Academic Program, will be in conversation with Conrad Egyir, a Ghanaian artist whose figurative narratives of the African Diaspora blend religious and West African folk iconography with domestic scenes; Joshua AM Ross, a multidisciplinary artist with a research-based practice grounded in archival experiences of photography; and Nathaniel Donnett, a multi-disciplinary cultural practitioner whose work engages with the poetics of the everyday and socio-political & cultural concerns, all of whom were in residence in North Adams in 2021–22 as part of the MCLA Artist Lab Residency.

Prior to the roundtable, attendees are invited to join a reception in the Manton Reading Room starting at 5 pm.

JOshua Ross Artist Talk

Tuesday, February 1

Joshua AM Ross holds an MFA in Art at the University of California, Irvine, and a BFA in Photography from Herron School of Art in Indianapolis. Ross’ research-based practice is an entrenched phenomenological approach that investigates institutional, bodily, and spatial structures that organize and influence perception. Ross’ multi-disciplinary practice employs and appropriates a variety of material and media developed through relationships to methodologies inherently related to his research and archival experiences of photography. Some recent notable exhibits Ross has featured artwork include Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Queens LA, and Human Resources Los Angeles.
