Overview

Baltimore artist Antonio McAfee’s work addresses the complexity of representation by appropriating and manipulating historic, photographic portraits of the 19th and 20th centuries. The artist will discuss the construction of specific identities through portraiture, and photography’s proliferation through economic classes and 19th-century sciences, using examples from his own practice as well as the museum’s collections.
