Gallery Talk

In this talk, Ph.D. candidate Kéla Jackson discusses the role of music, color, and interiority in Louis Delsarte’s 1995 print Unity, made during the artist’s residency at the Brandywine Workshop and Archives. Founded in Philadelphia in 1972 by Allan L. Edmunds, the workshop has supported generations of artists by fostering a deep sense of collective education and art making, foregrounding the “fresh, human and personal” aspects of art and the power of improvisation.

Led by:
Kéla Jackson, Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University
