Opening Exhibition Lecture » Men of Steel, Women of Wonder

Join us for an opening lecture celebrating Men of Steel, Women of Wonder, featuring artists Fahamu Pecou and Aphrodite Navab in conversation with Assistant Curator Alejo Benedetti.

Fahamu Pecou is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar whose works combine observations on hip-hop, fine art and popular culture. Pecou’s paintings, performance art, and academic work addresses concerns around contemporary representations of Black masculinity and how these images impact both the reading and performance of Black masculinity.

Aphrodite Navab is an artist based in New York City of Iranian and Greek descent (b. Isfahan, Iran). In 2004, she completed an Ed.D doctorate in Art Education at Columbia University. She received her BA magna cum laude in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard College in 1993. Navab’s art has been featured in over one hundred exhibitions and is included in a number of permanent museum collections.

Free with online registration.
