In February of this year, Art + Practice hosted a conversation between artist Amy Sherald and the Hammer Museum associate curator Erin Christovale. The pair discussed the museum's exhibition Collective Constellation, curated by Christovale and featuring Sherald's paintings. Delving into the show, they discuss the importance of figurative painting and portraiture while exploring the ways in which each of the artists in the show, are in dialogue with one another.
