James L. Allen: Artist-Photographer of the Harlem Renaissance
With Dr. Camara Holloway

During the Harlem Renaissance, James Allen photographed Harlem’s luminaries and enjoyed a successful career as an award-winning artist. When the story of the Renaissance was later written, though, his name was virtually forgotten. Dr. Camara Holloway will revisit her research that recovered Allen from obscurity and discuss the landmark exhibition that restored Allen to his rightful place in the Harlem Renaissance’s art scene.

Dr. Camara Holloway was the curator for the exhibition “Portraiture and the Harlem Renaissance: The Photographs of James L. Allen” shown at the Yale University Art Gallery in 1999. Dr. Holloway is an art historian specializing in early 20th century American art with particular focus on the history of photography, race and representation, and transatlantic modernist networks. She is recognized for her expertise on African American Art, particularly African American Photography, Critical Race Art History, and as a seasoned consultant for exhibitions, museum collections, and symposia/lectures planning.  Dr. Holloway’s research centers on modernism and photography within the circum-Atlantic world, paying special attention to the impact of race on art and aesthetics.
