Deborah Roberts was born in Austin, Texas, USA in 1962 where she continues to live and work. Roberts' use of collage reflects the challenges encountered by young black children as they strive to build their identity, particularly as they respond to preconceived social constructs perpetuated by the black community, the white gaze and visual culture at large. Roberts will have a major solo exhibition of new works at The Contemporary Austin, Texas, USA in January 2021.
Antwaun Sargent is an art critic and a writer who has contributed to The New York Times, The New Yorker, Vice and more, as well as essays to multiple museum publications. His first book, “The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion” is out now.
This event is a collaboration between Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and Georgia Museum of Art, the co-publisher of 'Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi.'
