About the Event

Join The Trout Gallery for an online Zoom event with The Eddie C. and C. Sylvia Brown Chief Curator at The Baltimore Museum of Art, Asma Naeem. Toggling between Early Republic American history and the contemporary moment, Asma Naeem will discuss her 2018 exhibition “Black Out Silhouettes: Then and Now.”  Arguing that the genre democratized portraiture in nineteenth-century America well before the advent of photography, Naeem illuminates how silhouettes continue to offer expressive possibilities for the unseen, in terms of race and power.

This event is free and open to the public.
