Special Event

The New Black Vanguard at BAM

Wednesday, November 13

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Peter Jay Sharp Building 30 Lafayette Ave Brooklyn, NY 11217


Join Aperture at BAM for this unique event celebrating the launch of The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion. Antwaun Sargent will be 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 will present their work, discussing everything from the history of the commercial Black image to inclusivity (and exclusivity) in the fashion and art communities. 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.

Co-presented by BAM and Aperture
