2023 Anne Hill Blanchard Uncommon Artists Series: “Life – The Art of Ceija Stojka” by Timea Junghaus


ERIAC Executive Director Timea Junghaus was invited to the 2023 Anne Hill Blanchard Uncommon Artists Lecture Series, hosted by the American Folk Art Museum.


The annual series, honoring the late Anne Hill Blanchard, an inspiring and passionate leader in the field and a devoted supporter of the American Folk Art Museum, highlights new and important contributions to the field of folk and self-taught art. The lectures showcase self-taught practitioners who are both guardians and pioneers, combining past and present times, Western and non-Western aesthetics, breaking with stereotypes and conventions.


The 2023 edition brings historians and curators together to explore heritage as a tool for innovation and resistance. Speakers include historian Philip Deloria on Mary Sully’s Indigenous modernism, and historian Jason Young on David Drake’s poetic ceramic practice in connection with the exhibition Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sept 9, 2022 – Feb 5, 2023).
