Thiebaud Endowed Lecture with artist Christina Quarles

November 17, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


Christina Quarles is a painter whose work questions assumptions and beliefs surrounding identity and the human figure.

Quarles was the subject of major solo exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. This year, her work is included in the Lyon Biennial of Contemporary Art and the 59th Venice Biennial. She received an M.F.A. from the Yale School of Art in 2016 and holds a B.A. from Hampshire College.

Her work is currently on view at the Manetti Shrem Museum as part of the exhibition, “Young, Gifted and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art,” on display until Dec. 19. The Thiebaud Endowed Lecture is organized by the Department of Art and Art History and co-sponsored by the Manetti Shrem Museum.
