Tomashi Jackson and Naomi Safran-Hon
Thursday, June 6, 2019, 5:30 pm

Artists Tomashi Jackson, M.F.A. 2016, and Naomi Safran-Hon, M.F.A. 2010, incorporate both traditional and nontraditional materials in their artwork to engage in contemporary cultural conflict. The two will hold a conversation moderated by Mark Aronson, Chief Conservator at the Yale Center for British Art, that will probe how the artists’ use of materials in their visually engaging and inventive work relates to themes of political, racial, global, and personal conflict.

This conversation is the keynote for the 2019 Historically Black Colleges and Universities Students and Mentors Institute in Technical Art History (HBCU SMITAH), a weeklong workshop hosted by the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, Yale University, and generously funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
