    • Wednesday, February 1, 1:15-2:45 pm
    • Location: VCFA Noble Lounge, College Street

    The Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine is a socially-engaged project started in 2010 by artists Mildred Beltré and Oasa DuVerney. Dubbing themselves the “Official Unofficial Artists in Residence” of our block, they set up tents, tables, and art supplies on the street outside their apartment building and invited anyone walking by to stop and make art with us. In this way they co-founded the Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine (BHAM), a collaborative public art intervention that explores art-making as a community-building tool in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

    From the slave crafts of tools and quilts in the 18th century to paintings and sculpture in the 19th century, black artists (Banister, Porter, Lewis, and Tanner) worked in the Western cultural tradition to be accepted in that world. Gradually in the 20th century, black artists (Harlem renaissance, Savage, Hayden, Laurence, Bearden, and Ringold) expressed black life in America as a fusion of African and Caribbean styles with that European tradition. Art historian Debby Tait presents.
