Library Lounge to Feature New Black Vanguard Section Through September 2022

Submitted by Susan Hernandez on

In honor of The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art and Fashion, Ingalls Library is offering selected titles—featuring over twenty artists from the exhibition—on view in the Library Lounge. The special display, marked by New Black Vanguard signage, features over 100 books, exhibition catalogs, and magazines, all available to browse. The display will rotate over the course of the New Black Vanguard exhibition, and we encourage visitors to return often! The Library is free and open to the public Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:50 p.m. 


Also on view: Ingalls Library is proud to display the special Fenty x Phaidon Edition of Rihanna, featuring a custom metal book stand designed by the Haas Brothers, “modeled after” Rihanna’s tattooed hands. This massive photobook is a kind of autobiography, which offers glimpses into the superstar’s life. The pages of Rihanna will be turned regularly over the next few months, and the book is requestable to view in Ingalls Library’s Special Collections Reading Room.
