Join us within Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now for a talk by Cornell Watson, whose work is on view.

From the artist’s bio: Cornell Watson is an award-winning Black photographer based in Durham, North Carolina.  His photography is centered around sharing the stories of Black people.  He frequently contributes photography to national publications such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and NPR.  In 2020 he was the recipient of Syracuse University Newhouse School of Public Communications Alexia grant for his award-winning photo series Behind the Mask, which was published by The Washington Post and one of Buzzfeed News’s top photo stories of 2020.  He has also photographed national ad campaigns for companies such as T-Mobile, MeUndies, Bombas and Adidas. From the artist’s bio: When he’s not creating photos, being the best spouse in the world, or answering emails while his 3-year-old daughter colors the couch with non-washable crayons, you can find him passed out from exhaustion on the living room couch.
