Ancestors, Art and Black Ritual Diasporas

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A public conversation with artists Junior Pakapym and Daniel Minter about their work and its inspiration, September 19, 4 p.m.

Antonio dos Santos Cerqueira Junior (aka Junior Pakapym) is a digital artist and painter whose work draws on the rich iconography of Afro-Brazilian religious and cultural imagery.

Daniel Minter is a Maine-based painter, sculptor, illustrator and assemblage artist whose work is profoundly influenced by his roots in southern African American culture and his decades of exploration of artistic and religious traditions of the African diaspora.

Rachel Harding, Sterling Brown ’22 Visiting Professor of Africana Studies, will facilitate a conversation between the artists with slides of their work. Both artists explore Afro-Diasporan religious sensibilities and environmental/racial justice concerns.
