Artist Talk and “Cuts and Beats” Exhibition Walkthrough with Cecil McDonald Jr. @ 3pm
Join Chicago based artist, Cecil McDonald Jr. for a virtual walkthrough and artist talk for his upcoming exhibition, “Cuts and Beats.” In his upcoming exhibition, McDonald Jr. uses photography, video, and text to explore intersections of masculinity, ancestry, and the artistic and intellectual pursuits of Black Americans. “Cuts and Beats” refers to the title of McDonald’s most recent body of work in which the artist subverts historical images, like publicity stills from Black artists in the Vaudeville and Minstrel era, by transforming them using techniques of photo collage, video, and performance combined with his own photographs.
