PCA/Terra Foundation Fall 2021 Workshop

Dancers, by Roy DeCarava, 1956

Every semester, students from PCA and Université Paris-Nanterre meet at the Terra Foundation for American Art in the occasion of a unique workshop devoted to research in American art. The workshop allows participants to share interests and methodologies in the study of American art, and to be active members of a transatlantic network of young art historians.

Students present their research work based on a jointly selected theme, and conducted at the Terra Foundation for American Art Library in Paris to an audience of peers. They work under the supervision of the Liberal Studies Department at PCA, and the Art History department at Université Paris-Nanterre.

This Fall, Cage Sebastian Pierre of Design for Social Impact and Master student at PCA, will present a research project based on the selected theme (New Narratives) and titled “Developing Negatives”. Through his presentation, Cage will analyze the photographic works of Roy DeCarava and the Kamoinge Workshop, as well as the “pseudo-architecture” and interdisciplinary works of Theaster Gates.
