POSTPONED: Black Vitality: Life, Listening, and The Sugar Shack

Thursday, January 26, 2023; 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ernie Barnes, “The Sugar Shack” (1976), acrylic on canvas.

Due to inclement weather, this event has been postponed to the spring

This Big Ideas in Art + Culture talk with artist Derrais Carter is a collective listening session masquerading as a lecture. Pairing musical selections from the Black Revelry Quiet Storm radio show with close readings of Ernie Barnes’ painting The Sugar Shack, we’ll ask what happens when we apply the painting to our social worlds.

At the beginning of the evening Elder Peter Schuler from the Mississaugas of the Credit will open the festival.

This event will feature ASL interpretation and live transcription. The River Run Centre is a physically accessible venue. More accessibility information can be found on our General Accessibility Statement.
