MA Candidate - Visual Arts Administration and Africana Studies
Morghan earned her BA in Art History, Visual Arts, and Africana Studies from Sarah Lawrence College. During her time as an undergraduate, she studied abroad in London for an academic year and attended Central Saint Martins and Queen Mary University of London where she explored the intersection of Visual Arts and Africana Studies. At Gallatin, Morghan is studying Visual Arts Administration with an interest in non-profit organizations, artist-run spaces, curatorial practice, and photography. She is invested in communicating personal and collective experience through the visual arts and examining the ways various artists across the African diaspora have conveyed themes related to racism in America, identity, and sexuality. For her MA thesis, Morghan is curating an exhibition of photographs and is researching the ways in which caricature produced during slavery has impacted how Black women are seen and portrayed in contemporary visual culture.
