Personal to Political
May 22 through July 26, 2020
At the end of the day, take a moment and join the MMFA’s Cassandra Cavness as she connects via Facebook live with two artists from the Museum’s current exhibition Personal to Political. Artists Radcliffe Bailey and Lava Thomas will discuss their work, the themes of the exhibition, and the widespread peaceful protests and turmoil surrounding current events.
Cassandra Cavness recently joined the Museum’s development team after working at Alabama State University. Among other aspects of her job, Cassandra strives to develop initiatives that foster conversations and engage communities in their history.
Radcliffe Bailey is based in Atlanta, Georgia. He works in layers, incorporating items from his own past and reflections on race, memory, and migration.
Lava Thomas is based in Berkeley, California. She explores various aspects of identity, including gender, race, and individuality, through varied media and expressions.
