Third Friday at Kingfisher with Artist Derrick Beasley & Conversation with Darrell Stover

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Kingfisher is proud to welcome a transformative new gallery installation from the talented Derrick Beasley. They will be exhibiting his installation, serving cocktails, and hosting a live, don’t-miss conversation between professor Darrell Stover and Beasley.

Derrick Beasley’s new piece explores the inevitable intersection of humanity, technology, and nature — the singularity.

Beasley is a multidisciplinary artist raised in Durham. He engages audiences through installation, space making, wood work, photography, and design. His work explores the intersection of science, science fiction, human experience and our collective and individual capacity to change our reality.

Darrell Stover is presently lecturer in Africana Studies at North Carolina State University where his most popular class is “Black Popular Culture: From the Blues to Afrofuturism.” He has engaged diverse communities encouraging vibrant cultural expression through writing and performance workshops. He is a published poet, cultural historian, performance artist, and science communicator with a Masters degree in writing from Johns Hopkins University.

Conversation will begin at 5:15, please join a wonderful Third Friday you won’t want to miss!

This conversation is free and open to all!
