Virtual Artist Talk: Vinnie Bagwell on Victory Beyond Sims

One year ago this month, Yonkers-based artist Vinnie Bagwell was selected by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to create a sculpture just outside Central Park (at 5th Avenue at 103rd Street) to replace a statue of J. Marion Sims, the nineteenth-century gynecologist who experimented on enslaved black women to achieve his medical breakthroughs. The maquette of Bagwell’s winning design, Victory Beyond Sims, is currently on view in HRM’s exhibition Women to the Fore.

Join the artist in conversation with HRM Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky for a close look at the monument and a discussion about its historical context and plan for its future installation. Virtual broadcast live on Instagram from the Museum’s exhibition galleries.
