(Carson, CA) — California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) President Thomas A. Parham will host a conversation with acclaimed mixed media artist Toni Scott on Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. Part of a strategic partnership between Scott and the university, Consequential Conversations: A Dialogue with Toni Scott will focus on Scott’s artistic background and how her cultural identity inspires her work.
Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Scott makes art installations and individual artworks that explore her African American, Native American, and European heritage. Her acclaimed installation “Bloodlines” debuted at the California African American Museum and has travelled throughout the world since its creation in 2012. In 2016, she became the first international artist with a solo exhibition at the Changzhou Museum in Jiangsu Province of China with “The Circle and Cycle of Life,” focusing on Indigenous culture, feminism, and technological advancements of the 20th century.
Last month, CSUDH announced the strategic partnership with Scott to develop innovative academic, artistic, and co-curricular endeavors. In addition to public lectures such as the Nov. 18 event, the partnership will include opportunities for Scott to share her work and engage in the critical examination of significant racial and cultural themes that her works highlight.
