Description

"Blackboard" brings together works that imitate, resemble, or feature a blackboard, to consider the relationship between art and education. The “blackboards” on view interrogate schooling, authority, literacy, form, and color. Drawing on the Cantor’s permanent collection, the exhibition features work by Raymond Saunders, Jasper Johns, Laura Volkerding, and Enrique Chagoya. Blackboard will be a part of the 50 State Initiative organized by For Freedoms, a platform for artists and museums to encourage civic engagement.
