Eselean Goree Henderson: A Practice in Clay
August 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join SSCAC Archives and Collections Manager Lamar Gayles Jr. for a special program on Eselean Goree Henderson.
Join us for a conversation with SSCAC Archives and Collections Manager Lamar Gayles Jr. on Eselean Goree Henderson, a prolific Chicago-area ceramicist whose work has heavily impacted the Black artistic landscape of Chicago through her own practice and exposing many other Black artists to practices in clay.
This blended program combines a short lecture contextualizing Henderson’s life and impact with an expanded conversation with two of Henderson’s daughters who will discuss the impact their mom has made on them.
This program is a special opportunity to for the public to participate in knowledge building and critical research in documenting stories relevant to Black artists who are now ancestors.
