Artist Naudline Pierre converses with Curator Legacy Russell,
Tuesday, March 3, 5:00 – 6:30 pm, in the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre.
The central subject of Naudline Pierre’s paintings serves as an alter-ego, an unearthly representation rendered in a spectrum of colors. As the artist has stated about her work, she is “acknowledging the incredible history contained with my body and transferring it to a visual language co-opted from the dominant Western art historical canon.” Pierre is currently an artist-in-residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem until September 1, 2020. The works produced at the residency will be presented at MoMA PS1 in the summer of 2020.
Legacy Russell is a writer and curator. She is the Associate Curator of Exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Her ongoing academic work and research focuses on gender, performance, digital selfdom, internet idolatry, and new media ritual. Her first book, Glitch Feminism, is forthcoming from Verso Books in Fall 2020.
