Since the link won't participate here on the org, here's a pic of the finest woman in the world and the link info... cool
.
The link was about a conference that will be held in New York City at NYU that will examine visual archives. De Angela L. Duff, a professor at New York University will discuss Vanity. This was what the link said:
.
I will be giving a presentation about Vanity on Fri Oct. 18 2:45 pm–4:15 pm at NYU. I'd love to see the Prince community there if you're local and you can make it during the day. The entire conference is truly wonderful and special. Please spread the word. Make sure you register! It's FREE. https://blackportraitures.info
.
The conference will explore the making of visual archives, the narratives they tell, and the parameters that define them as objects of study. As visual collections, photographic archives present specific concerns — especially as digital technologies change the way knowledge is classified, stored, retrieved and disseminated.
.
The following questions will be considered: How does the gaze visualize and influence the control of historical narratives? What icons dominate the visual culture of slavery and its archives? How do other artistic narratives encode memory, violence, and subjectivities? What is the future of the archive and how does it provide fodder for social change or artistic innovation? How do social and economic histories as well as experiences of race, class, gender and sexuality affect the construction, acquisition and maintenance of archives of the African Diaspora?
.
Denise Matthews: More Than a Nasty Girl
Denise Matthews was photographed profusely over her lifetime as a beauty queen, model, actress, and singer. However, after Prince rechristened Denise as Vanity, her image as a “Nasty Girl” transformed her identity and narrative. She will be forever known and seen as Vanity, despite being more than a “nasty girl.” In this talk, the evolution of Denise/Vanity will be revealed and deconstructed by showing how the photographic gaze shifted her narrative for better or for worse.

The Symposium in NYC looks very comprehensive; wish I lived closer, (CA) I would definitely go. Will it be taped, i wonder?

Vanity was not only stunning, she had a depth of character and withstood so much pain, both emotional and physical.

I admired her.

I continue to be appalled that Universal won't at least make her two albums available digitally.
