Brooklyn-based artists Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry, a husband and wife collaborative, have produced an impressive body of work that possesses a potent combination of seductive, exquisitely crafted images, and incisive content. Their thought provoking large-scale public projects, interactive sculpture, painting, photography, and videos challenge audiences to reflect deeply on a wide variety of topics including teen homelessness, gun violence in inner cities, homicide, the legacy of the civil rights movement, and their own experience as an interracial couple.
This lecture coincides with an ongoing exhibition at the Spelman College Museum of Art entitled Evenly Yoked. This exhibition presents McCallum and Tarry’s latest video endeavor Evenly Yoked (2010) and part of the Projection series for the first time in the Southeast. In this new work, they explore their relationship through the lens of a series of interconnected and historically bound narratives. The exhibition also includes other works such as Bloodlines (2007), Cut (2006), Exchange (2007), Topsy Turvy (2006), and Whitewash (2006 – 2009), that exemplify their engagement with self-portraiture, archival investigations, history, and race relations.
Evenly Yoked is organized by the Contemporary Museum, Baltimore and is a version of the recent exhibition Bearing Witness: Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry presented by the Contemporary Museum and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
This event is a collaboration between ACP and Spelman College Museum of Art.
