2022 Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Lecture: Elegies

September 22, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Telfair Jepson Savannah

Telfair presents the annual Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Lecture as a panel discussion with three noted contemporary artists featured in the exhibition, Brittney Leeanne Williams, David Antonio Cruz, and Elizabeth Colomba, in conversation with Monique Long, the show’s curator.

Colomba was born in France of Martinican heritage and is best known for her paintings portraying Black women in the elegant historical settings that often excluded them. Williams is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, London, Hong Kong, and in the Venice Biennale. Cruz is an interdisciplinary artist best known for his psychological paintings.

Elegies: Still Lifes in Contemporary Art is a group exhibition bringing together an international collection of contemporary artists who have disrupted or extended the traditional presentation of still lifes.
