The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 469 features artist Alia Ali and historian Molly Rogers.

The New Orleans Museum of Art is exhibiting "Alia Ali: FLUX" through November 15. 

The Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College is showing Alia Ali's work in a "projects series" exhibition. The Benton is closed to the public as a result of the pandemic. The Benton will offer four bodies of Ali's work, three at the museum and one which is will soon be streaming on the Benton's website.

Along with Ilisa Barbash and Deborah Willis, Rogers is the editor of "To Make Their Own Way in the World: The Enduring Legacy of the Zealy Daguerreotypes." The book, which was co-published by Aperture and Peabody Museum Press, provides a broad historical and artistic consideration of fifteen daguerreotypes of two enslaved women and five enslaved men acquired by Harvard professor Louis Agassiz in support of his notion that Black men and women were inferior to whites.
