Why is art history relevant today and how can images from the past help us understand the present?

In a seminar session with art historian Tilly Scantlebury you will learn how to look at figurative and abstract paintings to uncover hidden histories of race, gender and power by artists such as Frank BowlingHowardena Pindell and Barkley Hendricks.

This is a Summer University taster session and we will also touch on what art historians do and what and how you might study in a history of art degree.

Barkley L. Hendricks (1945–2017), Lawdy Mama, 1969, Oil and gold leaf on canvas, The Studio Museum in Harlem; gift of Stuart Liebman, in memory of Joseph B. Liebman
