Funk: American Dada
50 Women Co-Curator and Critic: Anthony Merino will be giving a free public lecture on how FUNK musicians like James Brown and George Clinton define the rise of the great American heterodoxy. One of the central characteristics of which is a redefining of the pastoral. This has become a major theme among many contemporary African American artists. The Lecture will tie into an exhibit Mr. Merino curated at the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild.
