Barkley Hendricks with
Trevor Schoonmaker

thursday, january 19, 7 p.m.


Many of the artists represented in 30 Americans cite Barkley Hendricks as a major influence on their artistic careers. Hendricks' distinctive, large-scale portraits of ordinary people, often African American, remain as fresh and stylish today as when he began his career in the mid-1960s. Hendricks discusses his artistic practice in conversation with Trevor Schoonmaker, Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art, Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, and curator of the recent retrospective, Barkley L. Hendricks: Birth of the Cool.

Online registration for this program is now closed. A limited number of tickets are still available for purchase at the door.
