The Fowler Museum recently sat down with Kennedi to discuss her exquisite personal project, Flexing/New Realm, which features portraits of friends in historically-inspired costumes and poses. Their talk with Kennedi served as 'a catalyst for a conversation about photography as a device for Black people to self-image; ways in which Black Americans use their artworks to communicate ideas of Blackness and its relationship to wealth, power, respect, and belonging; and the practice of Black artists who subvert power dynamics of traditional art historical portraits by placing Black sitters in traditionally white contexts.'
