Huey Copeland Sun Ra Lecture
Friday, September 23, 7pm
Admission: Free ($5 suggested donation)

Huey Copeland (PhD, History of Art, University of California, Berkeley, 2006) is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in The Graduate School and Associate Professor of Art History at Northwestern University, with affiliations in the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program and the Department of African American Studies. His writing focuses on modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on articulations of blackness in the Western visual field.

In this lecture, Dr. Copeland explores Sun Ra’s representations of space-time and their implications for contemporary artists. Copeland argues that Ra’s thinking points us toward new criteria for the evaluation of recent art that take seriously both the recursiveness and simultaneity of time as it unfolds within, beyond, and across the black world.
