Talk at Two: Impressionism, Post Impressionism and the Black Model

Heather Nickels, Joyce Blackmon Curatorial Fellow of African American Art and Art of the African Diaspora, Brooks Museum of Art, explores several works in the Dixon Gallery and Gardens' collection, highlighting the presence and absence of Black artists and subjects.


She also speaks about her role as a project research associate for the Posing Modernity exhibition, which opened at the Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University in New York, and later traveled to the Musée D'Orsay in Paris, France.
