Clark Art talk: Jared Sexton on ‘Basic Black’

September 17 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

View from the terrace into the Williamstown Art Conservation Center.

Beinecke Fellow Jared Sexton presents, “Basic Black.” At the Clark, he is studying black monochrome painting within the broader history of modern abstract art and the place of black artists working with and against these art movements.

What would happen if we re-imagined and re-envisioned all color and all colors as blackness, in the most expansive sense? Thinking about the universe (of color) as black all through presents the challenge of addressing all difference — visually and in all ways — as the internal understanding of blackness.

Jared Sexton teaches African American studies and film and media studies at the University of California, Irvine, where he is also affiliated with the PhD Programs in Culture & Theory and Visual Studies. His most recent books are Black Masculinity and the Cinema of Policing and Black Men, Black Feminism: Lucifer’s Nocturne.

His research has been supported by grants from the National Academies, the Fulbright Program, and the Andy Warhol Foundation.
