The Everson Up-Close Artist Series will spotlight Ellen Blalock in a virtual event from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 13.
On view starting April 10, "Who What When Where" is a provocative exhibition that poses questions about how narratives are constructed, interpreted and revised relative to time, place and positions of power. Spanning a variety of media and decades, WWWW features works by more than 50 artists and introduces several recent acquisitions that bring new and needed perspectives to the Everson’s collection. Blalock's work tells stories of the ignored and underrepresented. Her choice of media include photography, video, drawing, fiber and installation. During this artist conversation, Blalock will share about how she uses art to raise awareness of human conditions, social injustices, cultural diversities and religious and spiritual beliefs. She'll also discuss the meaning and inspiration behind her piece "Bang Bang, You Dead!" (2018), featured in "Who What When Where." Note registration will close 10 minutes before the start of this event.Find out more »
