Dread Scott Lecture

When: Tue., Feb. 27, 6:30 p.m. 2018

If the current political climate is good for anything, it’s underlining how important art can be as a means of dissent. Artist Dread Scott knows about that — he tussled with President G.H.W. Bush and Congress over his 1989 artwork “What is the Proper Way to Display a U.S. Flag?,” when still a student at the Art Institute of Chicago. Tonight, Scott, who works in performance, photography, screen-printing and video, talks at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art about his provocative work, which challenges viewers to re-examine American ideals and values, often through the lens of the African-American experience. -Al Hoff
