Join ArtTable for Artist Breakfasts, a series of conversations with artists. These intimate monthly breakfasts feature leading figures in the visual arts in discussion with curators, academics, and critics. This month we will hear from Nona Faustine, whose work has been exhibited at Harvard University, the Studio Museum of Harlem, and who’s body of work My Country, is currently on view at Two Palms and will be traveling with the studio to Miami Art Basel.

Nona Faustine is an award-winning photographer and visual artist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts and The International Center of Photography at Bard College’s MFA program. Her work focuses on history, identity, representation, evoking a critical and emotional understanding of the past, and proposes a deeper examination of contemporary racial and gender stereotypes.
Faustine’s images have received worldwide acclaim and have been published in a variety of national and international media outlets such as Artforum, New York Times, Huffington Post, Hyperallergic, The Guardian, New Yorker Magazine, and Los Angeles Times, among many others.

Her work is in the collection of the David C. Driskell Center at Maryland State University, the Studio Museum of Harlem, the Brooklyn Museum, and recently, the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
