Portrait of Mari Evans in ‘The Black Woman Project’ drawn by Gwen Smith


Conversation: Gwen Smith & Beth Coleman with Corinne Erni

Talk & Book Signing in the Lichtenstein Theater

July 18, 11 am - 12 pm

Join artist Gwen Smith and research scientist and artist Beth Coleman in a conversation about Smith’s The Black Woman Project and their upcoming collaboration on the creation of The Black Woman Project Foundation, followed by a book signing. The talk will be introduced by Parrish Director Kelly Taxter and moderated by Senior Curator Corinne Erni. Attend the program in the Lichtenstein Theater or watch the livestream on our YouTube channel. Masks are required throughout the program.

Gwen Smith’s The Black Woman Project (Vol. 1 & 2) is a collection of her painted portraits of renowned Black women. Smith uses selfies to reference each time she entered her studio over a period of two and a half years, creating a rhythm by merging her identity as a Black woman with her subjects. Some of the women Smith chooses to paint are artists, scientists, educators, politicians, writers, poets, and performers, and provide the impetus for Smith’s ongoing self-exploration.

Beth Coleman is a research scientist and artist. She is Associate Professor of Data & Cities at the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology and Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, where she directs the City as Platform lab. She is the co-founder of SoundLab Cultural Alchemy, multimedia art and sound platform. A 2021 Google Artists and Machines Intelligence awardee, Coleman is currently working on “Speculative AI: Octavia Butler and Other Possible Worlds.”
