Meet Detroit-based artist Bakpak Durden as they discuss their new work, created for Envision: The Michigan Artist Initiative 2023, with Liz Erlewine, Visual Arts Director at Crooked Tree Art Center in Petoskey and Traverse City.

Envision Conversations 2023 is a series of three events presenting insightful conversations between each finalist of Envision 2023 and a leading Michigan-based curator. Audiences will hear about the artist’s process and ideas that they have explored through the new and existing work they are presenting at Envision. Each event includes an artist talk followed by a conversation between the featured artist and curator. Audiences will have an opportunity to engage with the artist and curator during a 15-min Q&A period at the end of their conversation.

The Envi­sion: The Michi­gan Artist Ini­tia­tive 2023 is on view at Stamps Gallery from June 1, 2023 — July 29, 2023.
