Fresh Talk: Amy Sherald

July 14th, 2016 · Comments

Fresh Art International presents a live podcast event with American artist Amy Sherald at moniquemeloche gallery in Chicago. Recorded on July 9, 2016, at a moment in American history marked with killings that accentuate deep racial issues in this country, our conversation verges on joy and sadness. The timeless sense of black identity described in Amy Sherald’s figurative paintings reminds us how art can be both transcendent and aspirational.

We meet in New York where Chicago gallerist Monique Meloche is presenting an exhibition of his current projects during the Armory Show. I’m here to find out more about the ideas behind the work. What's motivating him to radically alter old quilts and African sculptures?
