Bruce Presents: The Artists of Instagram: Everything You Always Wanted to Know and Aren’t Afraid to Ask - via Zoom

Four extraordinary artists who have not only built substantial followings on Instagram, but represent a revolution in terms of how we define what makes someone a successful contemporary artist. From Lauren Ko (@lokokitchen), a baker whose visually exquisite edibles challenge traditional definitions of art itself; to artist-musician Laolu Senbanjo(@laulunyc), whose breathtaking take on Afromysterics caught Beyonce's eye; from actor-filmmaker Sarah Ramos(@saraeramos), whose teenage pursuit of celebrities grew into a provocative visual meta-commentary; to Daisy Collingridge (@daisy_collingridge), whose draped and tufted sculptures serve as evocative representations of the body and soul—these artists are singular in their approach and collectively representative of a generation for whom Instagram is a key element of their practice.

Advance registration required. Free for Museum members; $20 for non-members; students receive a 20% discount. . Members please sign-in at the top right and contact. Membership Manager Laura Freeman at lfreeman@brucemuseum.org or 203-413-6764 if you have any questions.
