Thu. Feb. 23rd 6:30 PM - Thu. Feb. 23rd 7:00 PM

Location: Margaret and Bill Benjamin Auditorium, first floor.

Working from her own and others’ personal stories, artist Endia Beal highlights the realities and challenges faced by Black women in corporate workspaces. With equal parts empathy and biting critique, she explores how gender, race, and conventional notions of professionalism are often used—intentionally or not—against women of color. In the videos that comprise this exhibition, Beal deploys a variety of artistic strategies blending documentation and performance. MORE>
