Premiere: “Chipping Away”

August 14

The new documentary about William Edmondson premiere’s at a symposium at Cheekwood in conjunction with the first large-scale museum examination of the artist’s career in over twenty years: The Sculpture of William Edmondson: Tombstones, Garden Ornaments, and Stonework. A Nashville native and the first Black artist to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Edmondson remains one of the most important self-taught artists of the twentieth-century. This exhibition, accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue published by Vanderbilt University Press, draws upon new scholarship on Edmondson to reevaluate the full breadth of his sculptural output on its own terms and as part of a comprehensive practice.
