Enjoy the debut screening of Greetings and Theses, which documents O’Grady’s 2021 performance at the Brooklyn Museum as part of the retrospective Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And. The film is followed by a conversation between O’Grady; Danielle A. Jackson, curator at Artists Space; artist Sydney E. Vernon; Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art; and Curatorial Assistant Jenée-Daria Strand.
