Kucera will talk about the quilts of Gee’s Bend, their artists, history, and the art. He has loaned several pieces and unique aquatints for the exhibition, Conversations With Gee’s Bend at the art museum from May 25 – September 3.
Considered to be the most important African-American cultural contribution to the history of art in the US, the Quilts of Gee’s Bend are “moving, powerful and Abstract Masterpieces.” Several artists across many mediums have been invited to express their own dialogue with the women and work of Gee’s Bend.
