Fellowship Project: Model Women: Changing the Gaze is a documentary that seeks to explain how black women navigate an artworld that does not readily acknowledge their contributions. Highlighting the advancement of a black woman artist and cultural producers creating their own paths will provide evidence of the determination of black women in visual art.  Contextualizing black women artists in the larger artworld by interviews with noted scholars will reveal the exigence with which black women artists work.
