Kerry James Marshall is a contemporary American artist whose distinctive body of work combines classical art-historical references with elements of African American culture and African-inspired motifs. Marshall's works engage audiences on issues of black identity and representations of blacks in Western art. He has exhibited extensively at prestigious institutions worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Whitney Museum of Art, The Miami Art Museum, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Art Basel Switzerland, and the Venice Biennale, and has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions both domestically and internationally. Marshall, a recipient of the McArthur Foundation's "genius grant," lives and works in Chicago, IL.

This talk is part of the museum's annual Clarice Smith Distinguished Lectures in American Art.
