ARTIST TALK Kevin Sampson Four African American Men in Venice: No Cross, No Crown

Kevin Sampson
Four African American Men in Venice: 
No Cross, No Crown
Kevin Sampson and three other African 
American self-taught artists—Lonnie Holley,
Mr. Imagination, and Charlie Lucas—were
invited to create site-specific installations 
in Venice in conjunction with the 2011 
Biennale. Sampson will relate his experience
of the artists’ adventurous and life-
changing three-week residency and offer
insight into this groundbreaking artistic 
presentation. Sampson will also show 
images of his work, past and present.
