In Conversation: Sanford Biggers, Andrea Andersson, and Sergio Bessa


For more than two decades, Los Angeles native Sanford Biggers has been developing a singular body of work that is deeply informed by African American history and traditions. In Sanford Biggers: Codeswitch nearly fifty of the artist’s quilt-based works seamlessly weave together references to contemporary art, urban culture, sacred geometry, and more. Celebrate the opening of the exhibition at this in-person conversation featuring curators Andrea Andersson, Founding Director and Chief Curator, Rivers Institute for Contemporary Art & Thought, and Sergio Bessa, former Director of Curatorial and Education Programs, Bronx Museum, as they discuss process, language, and migration with Sanford Biggers.
