Black Voices, Black Art: Upending Convention with Kellie Jones and Kimberly Drew

  • Brooklyn Historical Society 128 Pierrepont Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)

Art historian, curator, and 2016 MacArthur Genius Award-winner Kellie Jones, has both rewritten and rectified the narrative of American art history by shepherding dozens of overlooked black artists into a canon that was narrowly white. With her single-minded focus on contemporary art of the African Diaspora, Jones has literally curated change. She discusses her career, activism, and vision for the future with trailblazing social media maven and blogger Kimberly Drew, a.k.a. @museummammy.
