Richard Powell is the John Spencer Bassett Professor of Art & Art History at Duke University, where he has taught since 1989. Along with teaching courses in American art, the arts of the African Diaspora, and contemporary visual studies, Powell has curated nationally touring exhibitions and written extensively on topics ranging from primitivism to postmodernism. Powell wrote the catalogue that accompanied SAAM’s nationally touring exhibition Homecoming: The Art and Life of William H. Johnson (1991). He is the author of Black Art: A Cultural History (1997, 2002, & 2021), Cutting a Figure: Fashioning Black Portraiture (2008), and Going There: Black Visual Satire (2020).
