Conceptual artist Lina Viktor discusses her career as a painter, sculptor, performance artist and photographer with Vera Ingrid Grant, director of the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art. Viktor creates bold images composed of blue, black, white and 24-carat gold patterns. Her striking painting, Arcadia, is featured in the Gallery’s current exhibition “Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes,” which explores the intersection of jazz music and the visual arts. Arcadia’s blue hue inspired the Gallery’s wall color for “Art of Jazz.” Viktor has exhibited her work in galleries in New York City, London, Milan and Lagos, Nigeria.
The conversation is part of Sunday Afternoons at the Cooper Gallery, a series of talks on perspectives and practices in African and African American Art.
