More Info

How have black women been represented visually? How have they represented themselves? And how have those images shaped our understanding of what, in fact, constitutes representation? To answer these questions, art historian Huey Copeland examines the negress, a key figure in Western art from the nineteenth century to the present. Join us as he wends his way through a range of periods, places, and visual artists to narrate a transnational history of modern contemporary art.

The Evanston Northwestern Humanities Lecture Series is an ongoing  collaboraton between The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities  and the Evanston Public Library, whereby Northwestern University humanities faculty share their research with members of the Evanston community.

Light refreshments will be served.
