Join Mason Stokes in conversation with New York based artist/activist Donald Moffett whose exhibition, Donald Moffett:The Extravagant Vein, is currently on view at the Tang Museum. As an original member of ACT UP and the 1980s AIDS activist collective Gran Fury, Moffett has been — and continues to be — a persistent and influential presence on the the New York art scene. Moffett and Stokes will discuss ideas, catalysts, and the context in which Moffett has been making art for the past twenty years. Stokes, an Associate Professor of English and chair of the English Department of Skidmore College, teaches courses in African American Literature and the history of sexuality.
Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley, ‘80.
