Gallery Talk: Peter Probst
Professor of Art History and Anthropology

“Does Heritage Have a Form?”

The talk is held in conjunction with the Tufts University Art Galleries exhibition "Sanford Biggers", on view 8 October–15 December in the Tisch Family Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center/Medford. Organized by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Sanford Biggers is the first exhibition focused on the artist’s BAM series, begun in 2015, in which the artist seeks to memorialize and honor unarmed black victims of police gun violence in the United States. Through video, sculpture, and textiles, he brings to light the pain these acts have perpetrated upon society, but also points to the wider human condition and a desire to transcend.
