Double Vision Lecture Series: Nene Humphrey

6 Minutes 27 seconds

Seeking to ground herself and get back in to the studio after a great loss, Brooklyn-based artist Nene Humphrey found Victorian mourning braiding the same way most Americans do when looking for help: Google. The pattern similarities to her previous work – drawings from neuroscience lab slides – were uncanny and surprising. Humphrey expands on her journey with Kemper Museum Curator and Head of Adult Programs, Erin Dziedzic, discussing her 5 year exploration, collaboration, and the future of her work, Circling the Center.
