In Conversation: Aaron Turner on Black Alchemy

Attend the Event! – Thursday, January 6th, 2022

Before the 2021 Fellowship exhibition closes, join the 2021 HCP Fellowship recipient, Aaron Turner, and HCP’s Executive Director & Curator, Dorota Biczel, for a virtual conversation about the artist’s ongoing project, Black Alchemy. The conversation will illuminate Turner’s process, focusing on the roles that the studio, darkroom, and printing play in producing the work’s overall effects. The process is quintessential in the artist’s ongoing investigation of Blackness as a material, as an idea, and as a metaphysical framework. The conversation will also examine some of the key thinkers Turner draws upon to probe the limits of representation, as well as the different expectations associated with Black aesthetics.
