Virtual Conversation: Mapping Joe Minter’s African Village in America
- This event has passed.
With Eric Courchesne, Rachel Stephens, and Emily Bibb (University of Alabama)
Moderated by Lauren Turner, Ackland Art Museum
Join the Ackland for a lively virtual program featuring three scholars at the University of Alabama who have been collaborating across disciplines to create a dynamic website that maps and preserves artist Joe Minter’s African Village in America. Using drone video, LIDAR scans, image descriptions, interviews, and more, scholars Eric Courchesne (Geography), Rachel Stephens (Art History), and Emily Bibb (Art History) have worked with Birmingham-based artist Joe Minter – whose work is currently on view in the Ackland’s exhibition Unsettled Things: Art from an African American South – to document and catalogue Minter’s site-specific installations for generations to come, developing a new model for artists and scholars alike.
