Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Panel Discussion – Nirmal Raja with Portia Cobb, David Niec, Heidi Parkes, Valaria Tatera, & Della Wells
Nirmal Raja examines global movement, the cultural and material legacies of colonialism, and the lingering traces of memory from the perspective of one who has lived in several places before calling Milwaukee home. As a 2020 Nohl Fellow, she shared her monetary award with the five Established finalists—Portia Cobb, David Niec, Heidi Parkes, Valaria Tatera, Della Wells—and she brings them together as a panel to discuss her work and what it has meant to be an artist in a tumultuous year.
All 2021-22 lectures are free virtual events. Series supported in part by the UWM Black and Gold Committee & Differential Tuition funds, Frederick R. Layton Fund, the John Colt Memorial Art Fund, The Queer Curatorial Fund, Print Club, and OBJECT.
