Kerry James Marshall is known internationally as a painter, photographer, printmaker, and installation artist. The recipient of a MacArthur "genius" award (1997), Marshall speaks about his own work - powerful figure paintings that interpret contemporary African American experience. Marshall's work has been exhibited widely, including at the Venice Biennale (2003) and Documenta (1997 and 2007).

The lecture takes place in the Sant Auditorium and is free for members.

The Duncan Phillips Lectures feature distinguished artists, historians, and critics, whose presentations cover a broad range of aesthetic concerns. Started in 1987, the series honors Duncan Phillips, founder of The Phillips Collection.
