ART Exhibition | The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion

The New Black Vanguard

Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD)

From MoAD:

The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion curated by Antwaun Sargent presents fifteen artists, whose vibrant portraits and conceptual images fuse the genres of art and fashion photography in ways that break down long-established boundaries.

Their work has been widely consumed in traditional lifestyle magazines, ad campaigns, and museums, as well as on their individual social-media channels, reinfusing the contemporary visual vocabulary around beauty and the body with new vitality and substance.

The images open up conversations around the roles of the Black body and Black lives as subject matter; collectively, they celebrate Black creativity and the cross-pollination between art, fashion, and culture in constructing an image.

Exhibition on view from October 5, 2022 to March 5, 2023.

Location: MoAD, 685 Mission St (at 3rd), San Francisco, CA 94105
Ground floor of the St. Regis
