A Conversation About “Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle” between Randall Griffey & Sylvia Yount

The Evening Lecture Series is free and open to the public. With inquiries, please contact Kara Carmack at kcarmack@nyss.org.

 

Randall R. Griffey is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. He studies and writes primarily on early American modernism, specifically on American painting from 1900 to 1950. Much of his work has focused on the painter and poet Marsden Hartley. He curated the recent–and recently reopened–Great Hall Commission, Kent Monkman: Wooden Boat People, and is co-curator of Alice Neel: People Come First, a large-scale retrospective that will open at The Met in March 2021.

Sylvia Yount is the Lawrence A. Fleischman Curator in Charge of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she is responsible for the administrative and curatorial oversight of the department of historical African American, Euro American, Latin American, and Native American art, from the colonial period to the early-twentieth century. Before moving to the Met, she held curatorial leadership positions at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the High Museum of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She is currently working on exhibitions of historical Native American art, Winslow Homer, and the late nineteenth-century New York art world.
