Edward Tyler Nahem is pleased to present LIVE In Conversation with Dexter Wimberly: Kenneth V. Young. During a 20 minute presentation, Dexter will discuss Kenneth V. Young’s paintings and practice, exploring his work not only as a member of the Washington DC Color School alongside contemporaries Sam Gilliam and Morris Louis but also as an African American artist working in abstraction. The live Zoom presentation will be followed by a brief question and answer session with participants and Dexter.
Dexter Wimberly is an independent curator and entrepreneur who has organized exhibitions and developed programs with galleries and institutions throughout the world, including The Third Line in Dubai; Contemporary Art Museum CAM Raleigh in North Carolina; The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco; Koki Arts in Tokyo; and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. His expertise in Kenneth V. Young’s work recently lead to curating the artist's retrospective at American University in 2018.
