Artist Talk: Lava Thomas, Wednesday, February 9, 2022, 7-8:30pm, Danforth Lecture Hall FEB 9, 2022 VIRTUAL ARTIST LECTURE WITH LAVA THOMAS 7:00 pm, Online Mills Performing Arts Broadcast Lava Thomas tackles issues of race, gender, representation and memorialization through a multidisciplinary practice that spans drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and site-specific installations. Drawing from her family’s Southern roots, current and historical socio-political events, intersectional feminism and African American protest and devotional traditions, Thomas’s practice centers ideas that amplify visibility, healing, and empowerment in the face of erasure, trauma and oppression. See Thomas’ work at MCAM in Personal to Political: Celebrating the African American Artists of the Paulson Fontaine Press (Jan 22–Mar 13, 2021).
