Designing Diaspora: Refashioned Black Womanhood in the Art of Fabiola Jean-Louis

Dr. Leeds will discuss the ways women of African descent articulate diaspora and womanhood through fashion, style, and adornment using the work and diasporic journey of AFRICA FORECAST artist Fabiola Jean-Louis as the point of entry.

 


Community Conversations are opportunities for the public to connect their interests to the works of art on view with an audience. Previous Community Conversations have been dance performances, spoken word pieces, lectures, videos, and musical performances.

This program is organized in partnership with the African Diaspora and the World Studies, Spelman College.
