As part of the opening celebrations for "Kahlil Robert Irving: Archaeology of the Present," artist Kahlil Robert Irving will be in conversation with Hamza Walker, director of LAXART, an independent, nonprofit art space in Los Angeles. Irving is known for his ceramic assemblages made of layered images and replicas of everyday objects often considered detritus but that are representative of a historical moment, a way of life, or even specific individuals. Irving and Walker will discuss topics ranging from Black life and collective memory to urban landscapes, as well as how the mining of contemporary artifacts begins to tell a fragmented story of American history.
