Bicentennial Medalist in Conversation: Chaédria LaBouvier '07


Established in 1993 on the occasion of the college’s 200th anniversary, Bicentennial Medals honor members of the Williams community for distinguished achievement in any field of endeavor. The program, reimagined this year for a digital environment and the Society of Alumni Bicentennial, will feature each medalist honoree in conversation with a contemporary.

In this Bicentennial Medalist event, hear from curator, art historian, writer Chaédria LaBouvier ’07, in conversation with Lisa Dorin MA’00, WCMA’s Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Contemporary Art. LaBouvier is the first Black curator, first Black woman, first curator of Cuban descent and first Black author of a catalogue in the Guggenheim’s 80 year history, with her exhibition, “Basquiat’s Defacement: The Untold Story.”
