The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion

Katy Donoghue

18 January 2023

Museum of African Diaspora presents “The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion,” currently on view through March 5. The sweeping show, curated by Antwaun Sargent and organized by Aperture, New York, spotlights the artistry of 15 contemporary and international fashion photographers. In colorful and luminous imagery, themes of race, beauty, gender, and power are beautifully represented in over 100 artworks by barrier-breaking artists such as Jamal Nxedlana, Renell Medrano, Micaiah Carter, Awol Erizku, Adrienne Raquel, and Namsa Leuba. “The works in this exhibition signal a dramatic and long overdue transformation taking place in fashion and art today, one driven by the bold vision of a breakout group of Black creatives who are stewarding the representation of the Black figure in the marketplace,” said Monetta White, Executive Director of MoAD. “The stunning images and the compelling narratives they construct vividly claim space on the world stage for a Black aesthetic. This is a must-see exhibition.”
