Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Arnold Joseph Kemp in Conversation with Sampada Aranke
Arnold J. Kemp has been making and exhibiting critically engaging art for 25 years. The materials employed in his interdisciplinary practice absorb or reflect light while mirroring likeness, becoming haunted and ghostly metaphors for absented and obfuscated Black bodies. Kemp’s work is in the MetropolitanMuseum of Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and the Portland Art Museum, among others. His work has been exhibited widely, nationally and internationally, including at the Drawing Center (New York) and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, and featured in Nia DaCosta’s film Candyman (Monkeypaw Productions, 2020). He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2012. Kemp lives and works in Chicago, where he is professor and dean of graduate studies atthe School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

"Arnold Joseph Kemp: I would survive. I could survive. I should survive." will be on view at the museum this year. Kemp will give a reading of his poetry, then discuss the relationship between language and the aesthetics presented in his paintings, photographs and sculpture with the exhibit’s curator, Manetti Shrem Museum scholar-in-residence Sampada Aranke.

Organized by the Department of Art and Art History. Co-sponsored by the College of Letters and Science and the Manetti Shrem Museum.
