YoungArts Salon Series: Critical Junctures: Glenn Ligon
March 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $10
On March 5, the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts), in partnership with PULSE360, will present Critical Junctures, a public Salon featuring internationally renowned conceptual artist Glenn Ligon alongside pianist, composer and YoungArts alumnus Samora Pinderhughes (2009 Winner in Jazz). The candid conversation will explore turning points in Ligon’s career, the artist’s approach to issues of race, language, desire, sexuality and identity across mediums, and how his work continues to contextualize the cultural narrative of the United States and its impact. Critical Junctures is one of several dynamic programs hosted by YoungArts in New York this year, which prominently feature the organization’s alumni and master teachers based in the area.
