Each week during shelter-in-place, Museum of the African Diaspora is hosting Q&A sessions with artists, offering a rare glimpse into the artistic process.

This week, hear from artist Alanna Airitam, whose work confronts and interrogates omissions of people of color from historical narratives. Her photographic work asks the viewer to question who they are and how they choose to be seen.

Airitam’s portraits are photographed in the studio with minimal lighting, giving the work a painterly quality that captures the attention with beauty to deliver challenging messages.

When: Wednesday, July 1, 1 p.m.

How to join: Via the Museum of the African Diaspora

Price: $0 – $25 (sliding scale)
