Kumasi J. Barnett
Virtual Artist Lecture
Thursday, January 26 at 6pm on Zoom
Through painting over old comic books, Barnett changes their narratives into critiques of systemic racism. By addressing real-world issues through a superhuman genre, Barnett’s work dissolves the disconnect between contemporary American narratives and the reality of “justice,” making us reexamine cultural conceptions surrounding the Good versus Evil paradigm.
Barnett’s lecture is co-sponsored by Giertz Gallery at Parkland College, Black on Black on Black on Black Lecture Series, Krannert Art Museum, School of Art & Design, and College of Fine & Applied Arts at the University of Illinois.
