Romare Bearden Foundation presents the Cinque Artist Program Series at Harlem School of the Arts
ARTIST TALK WITH ADRIENNE ELISE TARVER
In her work, multimedia artist Adrienne Elise Tarver asks, "If mythologies from an imperilaistic past can so thoroughly permeate our present identities, can we re-configure the narrative to create new realities?" Through paintings, photographs, videos, and immersive installations, she seeks to open access to origin stories, drawing attention to the abundant mythologies of the Black woman and her interchangeable indentities.
Join us as we talk with Adrienne Elise Tarver about the historical and artistic references referred to in her work as well as the themes of otherness, origin stories, false narratives, and mythologies--all as they relate to the black woman in the Western landscape.
