Faculty featured in “State of the Arts” episode about Angela Davis exhibition

The image of Angela Davis was a lightning rod for both the left and the right in the early 1970s. A new exhibit explores her visual and political legacy through rare archival material from the collection of Lisbet Tellefsen, and with the work of artists including Faith Ringgold, Steffani Jemison, Carrie Schneider, Sadie Barnette, and others. The story includes interviews with Angela Davis, Lisbet Tellefsen, Art & Design faculty Steffani Jemison, and the co-curators Donna Gustafson, Interim Director of Zimmerli Art Museum, and Art & Design faculty Gerry Beegan. See Angela Davis: Seize the Time at the Zimmerli Art Museum (September 8, 2021 – June 15, 2022) and the Oakland Museum of California in the fall of 2022.
