In Conversation: Dale Brockman Davis and Alonzo Davis with Naima J. Keith | Art + Practice

The first in the series of artist in residence public talks at Art + Practice includes Dale Brockman Davis and Alonzo Davis, the founders and proprietors of Leimert Park’s Brockman Gallery and Brockman Productions, which exhibited celebrated artists such as David Hammons, Senga Nengudi, and Charles White early in their careers. While in residence at A+P, Brockman Davis will archive the records and ephemera of the Brockman Gallery and Brockman Productions, a process that began during the research for the 2011 Hammer exhibition Now Dig This: Black Art and Los Angeles 1960–1980, and will culminate in a living, digital archive and exhibition. This public program will examine the challenges of archiving and locating materials related to a particular history, the implications of such undertakings for art historical scholarship, and how this initiative can impact and serve a larger community.
