Cleveland Museum of Art: “Desktop Dialogue: An Art Anthology, Chapter Four”

May 5, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

An Art Anthology, accompanies the CMA exhibition Stories from Storage. Developed in collaboration with the creative writing organization Literary Cleveland, the series invites four local storytellers to offer artful interpretations of select objects on view in the show.
For the fourth and final chapter, poet Kamden Hilliard presents a new work, developed in dialogue with Kara Walker’s monumental collage-drawing “The Republic of New Afrika at a Crossroads”. Hilliard and curator Key Jo Lee discuss the histories that Walker’s work unearths and the new understandings Hilliard’s poem reveals.
