NMWA xChange: Alma Thomas and the Little Paris Group

September 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC+0

Sept-NMWA-xChange_sm.gifNMWA xChange: Alma Thomas and the Little Paris Group
This monthly talk show, a spin-off of the 2021 GLAMi award-winning series BMA x NMWA, connects viewers to NMWA and its mission to champion women artists. Join as hosts from the museum interview special guests including artists, educators and curators; consider topics relevant to our world; and offer insight into collaborations that NMWA is fostering while its building is closed for renovation.

In the first episode of NMWA xChange, the museum’s associate curator Virginia Treanor, PhD, and senior educator Adrienne L. Gayoso welcome independent scholar, art historian and curator Adrienne L. Childs, PhD. This discussion centers on artist Alma Woodsey Thomas and her connection to the “Little Paris Group,” a Washington, D.C.-based collective of Black artists established by Loïs Mailou Jones and Céline Marie Tabary.

Childs is an associate of the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute at the Hutchins Center at Harvard University. Her current book, Ornamental Blackness: The Black Body in European Decorative Arts, which explores the representation of Black figures in European decorative arts, is under contract with Yale University Press.


Tuesday, September 14, 12–12:45 p.m.

Free. Registration required. For more information, email
