FREE ADMISSION (FEB 8-MAR 30, 2024; Artist Reception: THU, FEB 8, 6-8 PM)

In celebration of Black History Month, Modernism is pleased to present Judy Dater’s most recent and ongoing portrait series, in which she depicts Black intellectuals ranging from the eminent Angela Davis and Wole Soyinka to San Francisco’s poet laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin.

My latest portraits are specifically of Black people who matter because they have made a difference to our society and culture. It is a privilege to welcome people of such achievement and humanity to my studio. It is without a doubt one of the most meaningful experiences of my more than fifty years as a portrait photographer.
