Critical Dialogue: Ross Gay & Didier William

Join us for a conversation with 2021 Pew Fellow Didier William and bestselling author Ross Gay, whose poems and essays explore the central theme of joy. William's paintings, prints, and sculptures explore issues of race, immigration, and personal and collective memory. His solo exhibition, Didier William: Nou Kite Tout Sa Dèyè, is on view at The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami through April 16. Ross Gay is the author of four books of poetry and two collections of essays, including The New York Times bestseller, The Book of Delights. 

This event is presented by Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture.   

The Critical Dialogue Series is hosted by Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University and is partially supported through the General Activity Fund.
