Atlanta Lecture Series

Lecture Series FlyerTo advance our commitment to nurturing art, the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) is presenting the Winston and Carolyn Lowe Lecture Series on African American and African Diaspora Art, featuring influential thought leaders in the art world who will explore the importance of African American and African Diaspora Art and its impact today on the aesthetic of the art world in the US and globally, and provide a forum for discussion about this topic among collectors, scholars, appraisers, writers, curators, artists and others involved in this genre.

This four-part lecture series takes place during 2014 in New York City, Atlanta, Martha’s Vineyard and Chicago. Its aim is to create an intellectually stimulating forum for the attendees, opening them to the exploration of various and new art forms, mediums and ideas, and the wide-ranging presentations of the human experience.

The first panel discussion in the Winston and Carolyn Lowe Lecture Series was held at the Harlem Fine Arts Show at the historic Riverside Church on February 1, 2014. The second panel in the series will be held at 200 Peachtree St. NW in Atlanta on Saturday, June 28,2014 in conjunction with HFAS .

The Lecture Series will give audiences the opportunity to hear from experts firsthand about topics ranging from art history and the history of African American Art, the marketplace for African American and African Diaspora art, to becoming a collector and focusing a collection, art as an investment, and what is and where is contemporary art going.

The second panel, which will be moderated by Winston Lowe, a board member and executive committee member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the oldest American art museum in the United States, will include Dr. Carol Thompson, curator of African Art at the High Museum, Dr. Kimberly Cleveland, associate professor of art history at Georgia State University who specializes in African – American art, African art and Latin American art, particularly, Afro- Brazilian art, Fahamu Pecou, a contemporary art artist, curator and scholar working at the intersection of fine art, hip-hop and popular culture and Dr. Camara Holloway, assistant professor of art history at University of Delaware who specializes in African – American art and African diaspora art.

The Winston and Carolyn Lowe Lecture Series will provide a meeting ground for experts to share their insights as well as provide an opportunity for the audience to engage the panelists in a question-and-answer session, extending their art experience. Following the panel discussion, the audience will have the opportunity to meet the panelists as well as various artists and learn more about their medium and what inspires them.
