Art History Course: Black Artists Working in Photography
This three-part course explores the work of the artists of the Kamoinge Workshop, a collective of Black photographers formed in the 1960s.

It offers participants an overview of how the Kamoinge Workshop developed an approach to image-making that centers the technical production, study, and distribution of images to create an image archive on Black lives. We consider how their work connects to a long history of Black artists countering institutional neglect and reproach by developing communities in order to sustain their craft and the work of their peers.

With a focus on analog photography and darkroom techniques across the twentieth century, the lectures will bring the photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop in dialogue with the history of Black photography in the United States, including the work of James Van Der Zee, Carrie Mae Weems, Lorna Simpson, Dawoud Bey, Robert Mapplethorpe and Lyle Ashton Harris.
