Cecil McDonald, Jr. on Cuts and Beats

@ Chicago Humanities Festival


Opening Wednesday, June 2nd, from 7PM - 8PM

Chicago artist and educator Cecil McDonald, Jr. sees the process of cutting, altering, and reassembling historical images as a metaphor for the complex histories of Black America. His latest body of work Cuts and Beat subverts often racist representation (like Vaudeville- and Minstrel-era publicity stills) by building new images using collage, video, and performance. Join McDonald, Chicago Humanities Festival, and Dr. Terri Francis (Director of the Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University) for a conversation about remixing past and present culture through art.
