Black Heroes of Art

Discover the Unsung Black Artists & Models who Left their Mark on Art History 

 

Join an intimate community for five lively discussions on the representation of black people in art. In each class, we will learn about an important black artist or model. We will study art from 1800 to the present, observing societal shifts and artistic movements and the roles played by people of African descent therein. Finally, we will examine work by contemporary black artists. Inspired by two exhibitions – Posing Modernity at Columbia University (2018) and The Black Model at Musée d’Orsay (2019) – this series integrates cutting-edge research from scholars such as Denise Murrell, Cécile Bishop, James Smalls, and Wendy Grossman. 

No background in art necessary. All that's required is a curious mind. Sessions are led by Lauren Jimerson, PhD.

Last year, I spoke on France 24 about the "Black Models" exhibition held at the Orsay. Here's a clip from that interview. 

Denise Murrell's pioneering research has drawn international attention to the topic of the representation of people of color in art.
