Clifford Gallery Exhibition: Black Mystery Month: Photographs by Bill Gaskins
Exhibition closing celebration Wednesday, March 23; immediately following Bill Gaskins' 4:30 lecture
Black Mystery Month merges particular mysteries of American history through a suite of still-life photographs and accompanying short video. The photographs act as ‘blackboards’ that engage audience interactivity through their form and content, test the cultural and historical aptitude of each viewer, and disrupt reckless claims of a post-civil rights America through lessons on an enduring pandemic of our age.
As a professor of art, Bill Gaskins has taught at The Ohio State University, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Missouri, the College of Art, Media & Technology and the College of Art and Design Theory and History at Parsons School of Design, and the graduate program in Media Studies in The New School for Public Engagement. Presently he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art with a faculty appointment in the American Studies Program at Cornell University.
Bill Gaskins received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Tyler School of Art, a Master of Arts Degree from The Ohio State University, and a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.
