Gallery Talk | Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze
Join Cantor's Assistant Curator of American Art, Aleesa Alexander, in Freidenrich Family Gallery to discuss Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze. Featuring paintings made in the last five years, Casteel’s large-scale portraits of Harlem community members are intimate portrayals of often overlooked members of society. In her own words, “I’ve always had an inclination toward seeing people who might be easily unseen.” Casteel’s deeply empathetic approach to portraiture makes her one of the most important emerging artists working today.
Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze is organized by the Denver Art Museum.
