Romare Bearden Expert Speaks at The Hyde

On Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 2pm,  Dr. Jo-Ann Graham will discuss abstract expressionism and the African American artist at The Hyde Collection in conjunction with the Museum’s current exhibition From Process to Print: Graphic Works by Romare Bearden, now through January 6, 2013.

imageDr. Graham is former  head of humanities at The City University of New York and associate of the Cinque Art Gallery, NYC, co-founded by Romare Bearden. This presentation, which is free and open to the public, explores the role of the African American artist in the historic and contemporary world of abstract painting.  It is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities.

From Process to Print: Graphic Works by Romare Bearden presents over seventy-five lithographs, etchings, collagraphs, collagraph plates, screen prints, drypoints, monoprints, and engravings, all created over a span of thirty years. Together they demonstrate how Romare Bearden (1911-1988), considered one of America’s most important and inventive artists experimented, innovated, and collaborated on his journey toward  mastery of the print medium.

The exhibition was organized by the Romare Bearden Foundation, New York, New York. Exhibition tour organization and management by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California.  A full color 140-page catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
