    In discussion with Cindy Lisica, PhD

    Join VAA as art historian and curator Cindy Lisica discusses the works of Guillermo Gomez-Peña & Coco Fusco, Kehinde Wiley, Mickalene Thomas, and more. She will highlight the role of the artist, the public, and the institution in significant works like Wiley’s portrait of President Obama and Fusco & Gomez-Peña's performative artwork.
