In this panel discussion, artist Kumasi J. Barnett and exhibition curator, Jeffrey Kent, are joined by Dr. Darryl Peterkin, author and American historian from Morgan State University. “When I was introduced to Baltimore-based artist Kumasi Barnett’s artwork in New York at the Armory Show in 2019, I was blown away by the content editing and visual editing process. So much that I felt very fortunate to have an opportunity to exhibit his artwork at the Peale.”
