Antwaun Sargent celebrates the launch of The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion. In this new book and exhibition, the curator and art critic addresses a radical transformation taking place in fashion and art today: the featuring of the Black figure and Black runway and cover models in the media and art.
For this unique event Sargent occupies the host chair. He is joined by four distinctive photographers who are reshaping fashion photography today: Arielle Bobb-Willis, Micaiah Carter, Tyler Mitchell, and Dana Scruggs. One by one, each presents their work, discussing everything from the history of the commercial Black image to inclusivity (and exclusivity) in the fashion and art communities.
Presentations to be followed by audience Q&A and a book signing
