Tuesday Evenings at the Modern: Dr. Beatriz Rodriguez Balanta
3200 Darnell Street , Fort Worth, TX
Dr. Beatriz Rodríguez Balanta received her PhD in Romance Studies from Duke University, where she focused on the visual and literary mechanisms used to refurbish racial and social hierarchies in Brazil and Colombia in the aftermath of the abolition of slavery for her dissertation Realism, Race and Citizenship: Four Moments in the Making of the Black Body, Colombia and Brazil, 1853–1907. Having recently arrived in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex as Assistant Professor of Art History at Southern Methodist University, Dr. Balanta offers interesting insights into the work of Yinka Shonibare MBE, currently featured in the Modern’s exhibition FOCUS: Yinka Shonibare MBE, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation titled "Paradox, Excess and Complicity": Yinka Shonibare and the Conceptualization of (Post?) Colonial Experience.
