Assistant Professor Faculty/Fellow, Department of Photography & Imaging, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
 

Sandrine Colard is Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow in the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She holds a Ph.D. in Art History from Columbia University, and an M.A. in Africana Studies from New York University. She received her B.A. in English Literature from the University of Brussels. Colard is a historian of modern and contemporary African arts and photography, with a focus on Central Africa. Her scholarly interests include post-colonialism in the arts, cross-cultural exchanges in visual cultures, colonial imagery and African portraiture, family photography, the representation of gender and domesticity, and the globalization of the contemporary art scene. Based on research conducted in Belgium, Kinshasa and Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of the Congo), her current book project examines the history of photography in the colonial Congo (1885-1960). Colard has published extensively on the “archival turn” in African arts. She has taught and lectured at Columbia University and Barnard College (New York). She has also co-curated the exhibition The Expanded Subject: New Perspectives in Photographic Portraiture from Africa at the Wallach Art Gallery (2016). Among others, Colard’s research was supported by fellowships from the Belgian-American Educational Foundation, the Musée du Quai Branly, and the Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Fellowship Fund for 20th Century Art. Before joining NYU, Colard was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institut National d´Histoire de l´Art in Paris.
