Come to his artist lecture next Thursday, September 19th at 7 pm and hear David Hartt speak on the commingling of the personal and the public, highlighting the narratives and ideologies that underlie manufactured identity and its lasting impact on society. You can reserve tickets here.

David Hartt: Stray Light, which opens on September 21, includes a group of color photographs and a video installation of the Johnson Publishing Company, which was founded in 1942 and made famous by its iconic magazines Jet and Ebony, as well as by its role as a leading arbiter of African American taste and culture during the latter half of the twentieth century.

And for a Friday afternoon boogie, may we suggest Ms. Janelle Monae?
