Exhibition Talk: Lauren Cross, interdisciplinary artist/filmmaker, curator, and scholar, will talk with Carter curator Kristen Gaylord about how the Black Every Day exhibition came together. They’ll also share information they’ve discovered in their research about the photographs in the Carter’s collection that span over 100 years of photographic representations of Black American experiences. Following their conversation, both speakers will participate in a Q&A. Seating for the talk will be first-come, first-served.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided during the talk.
