Dior Talks layers onto its self-anointed “Feminist Art” podcast series an episode with painter, photographer, sculptor, and director Mickalene Thomas who shares her thoughts on the representation of Black femininity.
Maria Grazia Chiuri initiated a fascinating dialogue with the artist in 2018 for the reinterpretation of the iconic Lady Dior bag for the House’s Dior Lady Art initiative.
They renewed their collaboration the following year, as well as for the Dior 2020 Cruise collection, for which the African-American artist’s powerful and colorful works were transposed onto the emblematic silhouette of the New Look.
In a conversation with the writer and art historian Katy Hessel, Mickalene Thomas looks back on her unique and inspiring encounter with the Creative Director: a captivating testimony and ode to beauty in all its forms.
