Widely considered one of the most important artists working in the world today, Kerry James Marshall, the University of Chicago’s 2016 Rosenberger Medal awardee, has created a body of work over his lifetime that has reoriented the canon of art and contemporary representation. Through lush and structurally complex paintings and other media he has told a story about race and American history that is at once unflinching and affirming. Awards and honors include a MacArthur Genius Grant, and serving on President Obama’s Committee on Art and the Humanities. Marshall has exhibited at major venues around the globe including Documenta (1997, 2007), the Venice Biennale (2003, 2015), and the Whitney Biennial (1997), among others. A major survey exhibition of his work, Mastry, opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in 2016, which has traveled to the Metropolitan Museum in New York and will be on view at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art Mar 12–Jul 3, 2017.

Marshall’s lecture, “As Luck Would Have It…”, is free and open to the public. RSVP required.

Presented by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, & Culture; the Department of Visual Arts, the Logan Center for the Arts, and the Office of the President.
