TALK: SISTER GERTRUDE MORGAN WITH ZOé WHITLEY AND WILLIAM FAGALY
Join Soul of a Nation curator Zoé Whitley, and former curator of the New Orleans Museum of Art William Fagaly, for an exclusive conversation on the legacy of Sister Gertrude Morgan within contemporary visual culture.
Sister Gertrude Morgan was a pioneering Black artist, whose practice began in middle age. She was featured in the seminal Black Folk Art in America, 1930-1980 (1982), and collected by Andy Warhol and Lee Friedlander; yet remains excluded from most American museum collections.
This online conversation will address issues of class, race, faith and visibility in American art. It will be moderated by the founder of The Museum + Gallery of Everything, James Brett.
