One Man's Perspective on Black Art in the New Millenium: A Conversation with Oakland Artist GREG EDWARDS

Join Professor Alexander Nemerov of the Stanford Art and Art History Department as he discusses the art and life of Greg Edwards with the artist himself.
Greg Edwards has been part of the California art scene since the 1960s, first in Southern California and now in the Bay Area. A maker of meticulous drawings and gestural abstract paintings, Edwards thinks often of the legacy of slavery and of what it is to be a black person in the art world. 
This event is part of "The Ethics of Democracy" Series. “The Ethics of Democracy” is a university-wide series of events during the winter and spring. Sponsored by the McCoy Center for Ethics in Society, the Department of Art & Art History, the Department of Music, and Stanford Law School, the series explores the ethics of democracy from the perspective of scholars, practitioners, and civil leaders across the country.
