Godwin-Ternbach Event: Artist Talk with Deja Patterson

Artist Talk
Wednesday, October 28, at 6:00 pm
Online via Zoom

Queens College alumna and artist Deja Patterson will address how the ideals of beauty have changed throughout the course of history. For centuries, Black women were only represented in portraiture as symbols of service and objectification.

Deja’s paintings reclaim the Black female nude. She also reclaims power against unrealistic societal standards through her work, in response to the fat shaming and discrimination she has endured as a 300 pound woman.

Program is FREE and registrations are required.

Godwin-Ternbach Event: Artist Talk with Azikiwe Mohammed

Creating Legacy Through Representation: A talk by artist Azikiwe Mohammed

Artist Talk
Tuesday, October 13, at 7:00 pm
Online via Zoom

One of the core elements of artist Azikiwe Mohammed’s practice is photography. In this talk for the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Azikiwe will be focusing on photography as document creator, photographs as objects both physical and mental and how telling stories in this space up brackets to the rest of his practice.

From traveling around the country on the Greyhound bus shooting, to his travelling free portrait studio, Azikiwe hopes to offer a look at what Black people look like as told by Black people, not to / at Black people, as is too often the case, with footnotes by him. The photographs are the footnotes.

Program is FREE and registrations are required.
