November 15, 2023 (7:30–9 p.m.)Virtual

A self-taught interdisciplinary visual artist, curator and gallery owner-operator, Fatima Laster (2023 Mary L. Nohl Emerging Artist Fellow) broaches social-political subject matter from a Black American vantage point. Her goal is to produce resistance art imbued with humor or irony to disarmingly reveal rejected or overlooked perspectives and people.

The Peck School of the Arts Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 2023-24 Artists Now! Lecture Series featuring diverse creators working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Nationally and internationally recognized practitioners explore and expand the boundaries of contemporary creative visual practice through May 2024.

Layton Fund, the John Colt Memorial Art Fund, The Queer Curatorial Fund, Center for 21st Century Studies, Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists Program, Print Club, Focus, and OBJECT.
