Lecture by Nicole Fleetwood

When: Wed., Feb. 20, 5:30 p.m. 2019

Professor Nicole Fleetwood will deliver the Claflin Lecture, “Portraits by Incarcerated Artists.” Fleetwood will discuss the various techniques incarcerated artists use to create portraits of family members, public figures, and other prisoners. Portraits by currently and formerly incarcerated people are works made by some of the most socially and politically devalued subjects who insist upon aesthetic discernment and the right to look and represent. They offer new systems of value and exchange through one of the oldest and most storied genres of western art.
