Curator's Tour: Charles White and the Legacy of the Figure

Hear from curator, Dr. Cherise Smith, during a public tour of Charles White and the Legacy of the Figure: Celebrating the Gordon Gift. Come view and learn more about the artwork, ask questions, and partake in light refreshments! This event is open and free to the public.

Charles White and the Legacy of the Figure: Celebrating the Gordon Gift examines White’s influence on his students, in particular Kerry James Marshall, as well as on younger generations of artists—such as Deborah Roberts, Michael Ray Charles, and Vincent Valdez—who also portray the human body. Particularly compelling is why these artists depict minoritized individuals and what political work such representations do. The exhibition celebrates a major donation of White’s artworks by Susan G. and Edmund W. Gordon in 2014, just as they participate in the centennial commemoration of the artist’s birth.

Parking is available in Brazos Garage at 210 E. MLK Blvd. Please call 512.471.0254 with any questions.
