Artist, 2020-21 Hodder Fellow and current Lecturer in Visual Arts Troy Michie will be in conversation with Tina Campt, Visiting Professor in Visual Arts and the Department of Art & Archaeology, about his recently published book, Rock of Eye. Rock of Eye, published by Siglio, is an artist’s book comprised of altered, collaged and drawn source materials, some familiar from Michie’s recent large-scale paintings and collages that center on the Black male body and his series tracing the social history and form of the zoot suit, other source materials open new avenues of investigation. The book includes essays by Tina Campt and Andrea Anderson, an interview by Brent Hayes Edwards, an afterword by Cameron Shaw, and it coincides with Michie’s solo exhibition at the California African American Museum (February 16–September 4, 2022).
