MNBA: Open for Works" with the leading role of blacks in art, day 26 Nov, 6St fair, at 3:0 pm

The protagonism of blacks in art is the focus of the day's meeting 26 November, Friday, at 3:0 pm, in another edition of the project “MNBA: Open for Work". On occasion, we will have the Lecture "Between professorship and captivity: Black teachers at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts”, by museologist and educator Reginaldo Tobias.


This conference aims to present the prominent role of black artists, who studied at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts (AIBA), still facing a slavery regime, briefly analyzing the trajectory of six artists who stood out as Academy students and reached the rank of Professors, as Tobias explains, who has been working for years at the National Museum of Fine Arts/Ibram.
