BmoreArt at Galerie Myrtis | with Larry Cook and Myrtis Bedolla
Thursday, April 1 • 6:30pm
hosted by BmoreArt

Join BmoreArt’s Jeffrey Kent and Teri Henderson for a conversation with artist Larry Cook and gallerist Myrtis Bedolla about the importance of Black-owned art galleries, documenting quotidian Black American experiences, and challenging the status quo through art and culture.

Larry Cook is a conceptual artist and photographer, a professor at Howard University, and an archivist based in Washington, DC. Cook is represented by Galerie Myrtis and recently achieved national acclaim in the 2020 MoMA PS1 exhibit “Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration.”

Galerie Myrtis is a Baltimore-based, Black-owned art gallery, located in a brownstone in the Old Goucher neighborhood since 2008. Owner Myrtis Bedolla is a curator, gallerist, and art consultant who specializes in 20th and 21st-century American art with a focus on work created by African-American artists. Bedolla has recently gained national press in the New York Times (“Black Gallerists Press Forward Despite a Market That Holds Them Back”) and authored the article “Why My Blackness Is Not a Threat to Your Whiteness” in Cultured Magazine in July 2020.
