3 Works: PJ Anderson on Contain
Join us for this free online series hosted by Chief Curator Sequoia Miller in which an artist shares three of their artworks and speaks about them in connection to a larger theme.

This week, our presenter is PJ Anderson, an early career ceramic artist from Thompson, Manitoba whose work explores craft, identity and culture, informed by the uneasy relationship between her indirect knowledge of her ancestors and a desire for connection to her African and Indigenous roots.

May 6, 2021 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
