A new exhibition focusing on the centrality of the black female figure in modern art opens October 24, 2018 at Columbia University’s @wallachartgallery and then at Paris’ @museeorsay. This #samshaw photo of #romarebearden and a model appears in the catalog to “Posing Modernity: The Black Model from Manet and Matisse to Today”. 👉🏾 “This is a narrative, a scholarly narrative, a well-researched narrative, that is done by a black woman about black women throughout history. Certainly, the importance of this goes well beyond simply modern art...” - @darrencwalker , President of the @fordfoundation #shawfamilyarchives + #romarebeardenfoundation + #modernart

A favorite #samshaw photo of American artist #romarebearden in front of Harlem’s @apollotheater is on the cover of a new book by Mary Schmidt Campbell (president of @spelman_college and dean emerita of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts). Shaw and Bearden first met in high school, then shared a studio together, and continued to collaborate throughout their lives. Shaw’s photographs appear in many of Bearden’s celebrated collages, and illustrate the interior of this new biography. “My aim is to depict the life of my people as I know it.” - Romare Bearden 👉#shawfamilyarchives + #romarebeardenfoundation + “An American Odyssey: The Life and Work of Romare Bearden” by Mary Schmidt Campbell
