Contemporary Innovations: Nakeya Brown

Black Beauty Still Lifes
Photography
September 5–27

Edge of a Dream

Brown’s photographs position black cultural ephemera dating from the mid-century period onward as central subjects within her still lifes. She challenges the shortfalls of the still life tradition, a genre that historically omits facets of black life and the narratives of women, by picturing black female subjectivity before her lens.
