CONVERSATION AND BOOK SIGNING WITH DEVAN SHIMOYAMA
Visual artist Devan Shimoyama explores depictions of the black, queer, male body in paintings that combine fur, feathers, glitter and costume jewels to bring dimensionality to his surfaces. In conversation with Nate Freeman, art columnist for Vanity Fair and co-host of Nota Bene, Shimoyama will explore the magical aura that appears in his works—in pieces that are both celebratory and complex in their depictions of queer and black American culture. The conversation will be followed by a signing of his recent exhibition catalogue, Devan Shimoyama: All the Rage.
