Faculty Bookwatch, Session 2 | On Visual Satirist Ollie Harrington
Friday, April 9, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Please join us for a conversation between Richard Powell and the art collector Walter O. Evans about Ollie Harrington, the brilliant visual satirist who receives extensive attention in Powell's Going There: Black Visual Satire (Yale University Press, 2020). Amplifying Powell's extensive analysis of Harrington's long career and powerful work, Evans brings not only his deep understanding of Harrington's art but also his personal experience. As Harrington's supporter and advocate, Evans spent significant time with him in the US and in Berlin, where Harrington lived and worked for decades.

Presented by the Franklin Humanities Institute and Duke University Libraries. Cosponsors are the Department of African and African American Studies and the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke University.
