Conversation with Artist Endia Beal: Am I What You’re Looking For? (Webinar)
- July 17, 2021
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Endia Beal is a North Carolina based artist, curator, and author. Beal’s work merges fine arts with social justice. She uses photography and video to reveal the often overlooked and unappreciated experiences unique to people of color. Specifically, Beal’s first monograph, Performance Review, brings together work over a 10-year period that highlights the realities and challenges for women of color in the corporate workplace.
In this webinar, Beal will provide a brief retrospective of four bodies of work including Office Scene, Can I Touch It, 9 to 5, and Am I What You’re Looking For? These works examine the personal and contemporary stories of women of color working within the corporate space, while addressing the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in corporate hiring practices.
