Margaret & Terry Stent Conversation in American Art: Edgefield Pottery
Jason R. Young, cocurator of Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina, will speak with cocurators Katherine Jentleson and Monica Obniski about the exhibition at the High. Young will share his research about face vessels as well as connections between the exhibition and his book Rituals of Resistance: African Atlantic Religion in Kongo and the Lowcountry South in the Era of Slavery (LSU Press). Then, the three will discuss the implications of Young’s work for the exhibition and for art from the American South more broadly.
