SHAN Wallace, an award-winning artist from Baltimore, has been working this summer with students at Charlotte’s Lorien Academy of the Arts to create a provocative and insightful series of photograph sessions. On August 14, 2019 at the “12:15 @ Main” program series, SHAN will present the results of this exciting collaboration.
SHAN uses her powerful art to inspire, and challenge, cultural and political narratives of black life. In her program, SHAN will also demonstrate how she balanced teaching Charlotte youth with developing a new body of her own work.
SHAN has taught at such prestigious institutions as the Getty Institute in Los Angeles and the Smithsonian Hirshorn Museum in Washington D.C. We are excited to have her present her latest work at Main Library’s “12:15 @ Main”.
