We Are Here: Visionaries of Color Transforming the Art World

THURSDAY APR 29, 2021 5:00 PM PDT

Jasmin Hernandez’s new book We Are Here: Visionaries of Color Transforming the Art World features interviews and photography profiling 50 influential BIPOC artists and cultural producers, from New York to Los Angeles and beyond, shifting the art world. Hernandez, the author and founder of Gallery Gurls, celebrates the release of her book in conversation with artists Genevieve Gaignard and Patrick Martinez and arts writer and curator Essence Harden. The panelists will discuss how they are creating a more radically inclusive world, followed by a Q&A moderated by Hammer associate curator Erin Christovale.
