Congratulations Professor Monica L. Miller!
Professor Miller shares two projects in London:
1) Along with other academics, I was an initial consultant (very small role, but fun) for the V&A Museum's historic exhibition Africa Fashion, which opens on July 2nd-- it is getting amazing press in England. I wrote an essay for the exhibition catalog, "Orange Culture: Once Upon a Time in Nigeria…". Orange Culture (A Nigerian fashion label that makes clothes for all genders) is featured on the cover of the book. The catalog will be available in August 2022.
2) Last year, I wrote an essay for Theaster Gates: A Clay Sermon show at the Whitechapel Gallery, a show that was in collaboration with the V&A. Gates' work has been on exhibition in London since Fall of 2021 and now includes his "Black Chapel" installation for the 2022 Serpentine Pavilion. The catalog for A Clay Sermon, including my essay, "Oh Yeah! Yes! Oh Yeah!: Theaster Gate's film A Clay Sermon" will also be published in August of 2022.
