Ebony G. Patterson . . . while the dew is still on the roses . . .
February 27 – November 08, 2020
The Nasher Museum presented the Annual Rothschild Lecture, as a virtual conversation between artist Ebony G. Patterson and Richard J. Powell, John Spencer Bassett Professor of Art & Art History and professor in the Department of African and African American Studies at Duke on December 2, 2020.
Patterson’s solo exhibition Ebony G. Patterson . . . while the dew is still on the roses . . . opened for 10 days at the Nasher Museum before the museum was suddenly closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Patterson and Powell discuss how her work investigates forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities and break down themes of violence, masculinity, visibility and invisibility within black youth culture globally.
The Nasher Museum is fully open to the public with ongoing health and safety protocols and free admission for all, including Thursday nights and weekends. We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher.
