Kelly-Christina Grant Artist Talk at Atlanta Contemporary

(c) Fabrice Gousset

Join us at Atlanta Contemporary as Villa Albertine resident and art-history PhD student Kelly-Christina Grant discusses her residency project and the contemporary art market in France and the US with Floyd Hall, director of Atlanta Contemporary.

During her residency, Grant is investigating the blend of traditions and references that emerge from analyzing the landscapes of the United States, France, and Haiti in Jones’ work. Grant will study how these contributed, whether directly or indirectly, to the creation of her Black Atlantic. Learn more about Kelly-Christina Grant’s residency here.

This talk is in partnership with Atlanta Contemporary, who are presenting talks with Villa Albertine residents. 

The event will last about one hour and will take place within the Lecture Hall. It is free to attend–RSVP link coming soon.

A card-only bar is available to those 21+. Parking is free in the lot at Bankhead & Means Street (Google Maps Location). You can access the lot via Bankhead Avenue and proceed past the parking attendant booth.

Kelly-Christina Grant is currently completing a PhD in art history at Université Paris-Nanterre under the direction of Judith Delfiner and Jacqueline Francis, who teaches at the California College of the Arts. A young art history researcher, she has expanded her multidisciplinary background with experience in the contemporary art market through working at the Mariane Ibrahim International Gallery. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach that combines art history, African American studies, cultural and visual studies, and gender studies, her thesis examines the transnational experience of Loïs Mailou Jones (1905–1998) through her landscape painting practice. Her research and writings have received the support of AWARE and, most recently, the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
