Events: Member Exclusive: Curator-Led Tour of
“Something Over Something Else”: Romare Bearden’s Profile Series
11:00 a.m.–12:00 a.m.
Inspired by the High’s recent acquisition of a key work from Romare Bearden’s Profile series, “Something Over Something Else” will be the first exhibition to reassemble more than 30 collages from the series and to re-create the experience of its original presentations in 1978 and 1981, which featured accompanying wall texts Bearden wrote in collaboration with his friend Albert Murray, an essayist, jazz critic, and novelist.
Take a closer look at the exhibition on this exclusive guided tour, led by Stephanie Heydt, the High’s Margaret and Terry Stent Curator of American Art. Together we’ll explore this understudied body of work and learn about Bearden’s broader inspirations, which lend insight into American life in the early decades of the twentieth century.
Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Register today using the ticketing link above or by calling our Member and Guest Services Center at 404-733-4575 (Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.).
Please note: another curator-led tour of this exhibition will be offered on Tuesday, December 10, from 2 to 3 p.m.
