Whitfield Lovell works on view at Hunter

Contemporary mixed-media and installation artist Whitfield Lovell, whose collection “Deep River” goes on view at the Hunter Museum of American Art, 10 Bluff View, on Saturday, May 18, will be in town on Friday, May 17, to present the program in the Art Wise: Distinguished Speakers series.

His talk will begin at 6 p.m. Lovell is internationally renowned for his thought-provoking images of anonymous African-Americans from the 19th and 20th centuries such as “Autour du Monde.”

The highlight of “Deep River” is a large, site-specific installation Lovell created for the Hunter that explores the legacy of blacks who fled from slavery. “Deep River” runs through Oct. 13.
