Lit Fridays is a literary-focused, virtual salon presented by The August Wilson African American Cultural Center, featuring conversations and guest performances on the last Friday of each month.
Nona Faustine is a native New Yorker and award winning photographer. Her work focuses on history, identity and representation, evoking a critical and emotional understanding of the past, and proposes a deeper examination of contemporary racial and gender stereotypes.
Faustine’s My Country series is currently on view in The Warhol’s Fantasy America exhibition. Fantasy America invited artists Nona Faustine, Kambui Olujimi, Pacifico Silano, Naama Tsabar, and Chloe Wise to revisit Andy Warhol’s publication America, and contribute through their own artistic practices. Each of these five artists produces work that offers a complex picture of contemporary American life.
Lit Fridays with Nona Faustine is free and will be held virtually on Friday, March 26 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. For more information, or to reserve your free virtual seat, visit the Lit Fridays with Nona Faustine event page.
