Add event to my calendar

Spend your lunch hour hearing from David C. Hart, PhD, associate professor of Art History in CIA's Liberal Arts Department. During Lunch on Fridays from 12:15 to 1:30pm Friday, October 22, he will discuss how the pandemic disrupted his initial sabbatical proposal and how he successfully developed a new focus.

This event will be hosted on Zoom Webinar via this link:

Dr. Hart will discuss how his sabbatical proposal—developed in 2019 to explore the work of a diverse array of artists at the Martha Jackson gallery in New York in the 1960s and 1970s—was rendered unworkable by the pandemic. Undaunted, he developed a new topic based on research he has conducted over the past 20 years. That effort will culminate in a writing that will appear in a peer-reviewed journal article focusing on Black women artists, memory and the artistic forms that represent them.

Hart has taught at CIA since 2003. He received his master’s and doctorate degrees in art history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research focuses on the art of the Black Atlantic and modern and contemporary art, including contemporary Cuban art. The memory works of multimedia artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons is the current focus of his research. He has curated and authored catalogue essays for several exhibitions, including Inside/Outside: Contemporary Cuban Art and The Art of Exchange: Contemporary Cuban Art in Cleveland. Hart is the author of articles on the intersection of art and identity in several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Race and Racism.
