Episode No. 372 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday clips episode featuring a previously aired conversation with artist Deborah Roberts.
Roberts recently won a 2018 Anonymous Was a Woman grant. The program provides an unrestricted grant that “enables women artists, over 40 years of age and at a significant juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work.”
Roberts came onto the program in February, 2018 on the occasion of the Spelman College Museum of Art exhibition “Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi.” The show featured work Roberts has made in the last half-decade, work that uses collage and girlhood to examine issues of race, gender, and America’s present condition. It was curated by Andrea Barnwell.
Deborah Roberts was recently included in the group exhibition “Fictions” at the The Studio Museum in Harlem. Her work is in the collections of the Studio Museum, the Blanton at the University of Texas, and the Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University.
