Prof. Huey Copeland, Dept of Art History at Northwestern, is an art historian, critic, and sometime curator who is the author of Bound to Appear: Art, Slavery, and the Site of Blackness in Multicultural America (UC Press, 2013), about four contemporary African American artists. He has published widely in a variety of literary reviews, art-critical publications, and academic journals, much of it on the issue of slavery and its aftermath in contemporary art. Selections from Bound to Appear and one other essay will be up for discussion. Organized jointly with Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, this reading group is designed to prepare for Prof. Copeland’s visit to Pittsburgh at the end of March.
