Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection contains an audio recording Annette Lawrence created of an interview with her conducted by Jerome Weeks of KERA radio at the Greater Denton Arts Council's (GDAC) Patterson-Appleton Arts Center on November 15, 2019. The interview was conducted as part of KERA's State of the Arts series and was open to a public audience. Lawrence and Weeks are introduced by GDAC executive director Georgina Ngozi and questions are taken from the audience following the interview. The recording has a runtime of 56 minutes and 26 seconds.

During the interview, Weeks and Lawrence discuss Lawrence's work, particularly her show More Time, which was on view at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center at the time of the interview, and installation work she has done for other venues including Coin Toss, a permanent installation at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Other topics discussed include the influence of the Brooklyn Bridge on Lawrence's work, the everyday materials like string she uses in her installations, journalling and recording time, the use of data in her work, and representations and erasures of African-American experiences in art and literature.

Audience questions addressed topics of plans to digitize Lawrence's work, her creative process, and the influence of the lunar calendar and menstrual cycles, erasure as a concept, and music on her work.
