Guild Hall: Art Criticism, The Next Generation

A new generation of commentators are remaking art criticism in their image. This program will screen three short films and one work-in-progress, showcasing arts experiences from Native American, Afro-Brazilian, African-American, and Caribbean-American communities. A panel discussion will follow with Millennial curators and journalists responding to the changing understanding of cultural heritage. Shorts include Digital Natives: Plains Indians at The Met, Free Blacks: DanceAfrica at BAM, Millennial Realness: 2019 Whitney Biennial and documentary work-in-progress Carnival Queens.

Panelists:

  • Filmmaker and art critic Tiffany Bradley expands the discussion of art, heritage, and identity.
  • Multi-hyphenate Belinda Becker tells stories through in dance, acting, journalism, and music.
  • Historian Dr. Tyesha Maddox of Fordham University explores kinship networks and social organizations in her research on Caribbean American identity.
