EVENT CANCELED

Hilton Als, Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker critic and curator of the exhibition The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, gives an epistolary-form talk exploring Yiadom-Boakye's unique subject matter: imaginary portraits of people of color. Als analyzes Yiadom-Boakye's portraits in the context of ideas about color put forth by thinkers ranging from Goethe to Ludwig Wittgenstein.
