The School of Art is pleased welcome scholar Dr. Rachel Grace Newman to the spring Visiting Lecture Series on April 13 at Hillside Auditorium 206 at 5:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Rachel Grace Newman is an art historian from Toronto, Canada, with family roots in Jamaica. She specializes in art history of the colonial Caribbean and contemporary art practices of the Caribbean and African diasporas. Her research in colonial history has informed her curatorial and artistic practice.

In the spring of 2016, she curated Blood in the Sugar Bowl at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, which used 18th-century sugar bowls as an entry point to examine the colonial sugar trade. Her art project, In Rapture, is a collaboration with her brother, Alex, who completed his BA in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute. Using large-scale styled portraits and narrative photography, their work examines ancestral connections to geographic sites in a world impacted by the forced and voluntary migrations that took place under colonial rule.
