Join Hamiltonian for an artist talk with Christie Neptune on her current exhibition She Fell From Normalcy. Neptune will be in dialogue with Rhea Combs, Curator of Film & Photography at Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. Combs and Neptune will discuss the themes and inspiration behind the artist’s newest body of work on view at Hamiltonian Gallery.
Christie Neptune received her B.A. in Visual Arts from Fordham University. A Brooklyn native, Neptune works primarily with film, photography and mixed media to create provocative images that challenge and question how we define the “self” within the collective world. Her three-part series “Eye of the Storm”, of which “She Fell From Normalcy” is the final installment, examines mental health issues in communities of color.
Rhea Combs, PhD is the Curator of Film & Photography at Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the head of the museum’s Center for African American Media Arts (CAAMA). A curator and professor, Combs received her doctorate in American Studies from Emory University where she concentrated in film, gender, and African American cultural production. Combs has independently curated shows both nationally and internationally.
Hamiltonian is located at 1353 U Street NW. For more information visit www.hamiltonianartists.org.
