Artist Talk: Destiny Palmer
2-3:30 pm, online

Boston-based artist Destiny Palmer will discuss her public art and studio-based practice, which function as places to create dialogue and make space for investigation. Trained as a painter, Palmer's work explores the intersections of painting, history and color, allowing it to blur the lines of painting, sculpture and installation. She has hosted workshops at The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts and has participated in exhibitions at Antenna Gallery, The Colored Girls Museum, Automat Collective, Ely Center for the Arts, Vandermoot Gallery, Landmark College. 

Sponsored by the Kniznick Gallery, Women’s Studies Research Center. Please register in advance.
