Romare Bearden (1911-1988) | Virtual Lecture

Art History Lectures with Rebecca Albiani

Thursday, June 9, 2022
11:00am – 12:30 pm


Informed by his early cartooning and social work, Bearden’s (1911-1988) art explores ordinary African Americans in New York, Pittsburgh, and the rural South. Bearden is best known for his dense figurative collages, as seen and recontextualized in conversation with the artist’s lesser known abstractions in the Romare Bearden: Abstraction exhibition opening at the Frye in June.
