Glass House Presents: Life, Ebony, and Modernism in 1950s America
In this virtual talk based on her new book, scholar Kristina Wilson will examine the presence of modern design in Life and Ebony magazines in the 1950s. Through a deep dive into advertising images and editorial content, she will explore how modern design appeared in each magazine as well as discuss how codes of race, gender, and identity influenced — and were influenced by — modern design in these mass media landscapes.

Kristina Wilson is Professor of Art History at Clark University in Worcester. She is an award-winning author and curator who writes about design history, the history of museums, and American modernism. Her newest publication is Mid-Century Modernism and the American Body: Race, Gender, and the Politics of Power in Design (Princeton University Press, April 2021).
