Kerry James Marshall in Conversation with Chris Dercon

Kerry James Marshall’s Mastry, a 35-year career retrospective of his virtuosic paintings of African-American life, is now on view at the MOCA Los Angeles after meeting with universal acclaim at the MCA Chicago and the Met Breuer in New York. Chris Dercon, soon-to-be director of the Volksbühne theater in Berlin, is a longtime admirer of Marshall’s work, which he acquired for the Tate Modern in London while he was director there. Please join us for their conversation about Marshall’s art and its impact. Two important recent works by Kerry James Marshall, generously loaned to the American Academy on the occasion of his residency, will be on display at GRISEBACH.
