Black Life: Sam Vernon
Artist Sam Vernon offers a talk on the occasion of a new print project made in collaboration with the BAMPFA Film Library & Study Center. This special edition print piece, produced in the BAMPFA Art Lab, will be mailed to all who register for this event.
Sam Vernon earned her MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University in 2015 and her BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 2009. Her installations combine xerox collages, photographs, paintings, and sculptural components in an exploration of personal narrative, identity, and historical memory. Vernon is an assistant professor in the Printmedia and Graduate Fine Arts programs at California College of the Arts (CCA) and a visiting assistant professor in Studio Arts at Bard College.
