Lizzetta LeFalle-Collins, (UCLA, History of Art, M.A. and Ph.D., 1997), principal LeFalle/Collins Projects, an arts consulting firm, has been a writer, art historian, and independent curator for more than 25 years. Specializing in modern and present-day art, LeFalle-Collins has exhibitions for museums throughout the United States and for international biennales in Brazil and South Africa. The artists’ voice is central to her work.

LeFalle-Collins is the Museum of the African Diaspora’s (MoAD) Manager of Visual Arts and is presently completing a multifaceted curatorial project entitled Cultivating Crosscurrents: Africa and Black Diasporas in Dialogue, 1960-1980, on view at MoAD from October 24, 2013-March 2, 2014. The exhibition explores the influence of Black liberation movements on various artistic genres—including music, art, poetry, and film—and Black internationalism through the display of selected objects and includes works of art by Malick Sidibé, David Hammons, Elizabeth Catlett, Donald Locke, and Romare Bearden, among others.

At MoAD, LeFalle-Collins created a Curator’s Choice guest curator program where from 2013 through 2016 the following guest curators will organize curatorial projects: Franklin Sirmans’ The Ruth Waddy Sketchbook, Nicole Caruth’s, Grace Jones Project, Sylvester Ogbechie’s Art and the Digital Revolution in Africa, Alejandro de la Fuente’s, Drapetomania: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba, and Jacqueline Francis’, Turn: Sitting in the African Diaspora Now.

LeFalle-Collins has also published articles in journals such as International Review of African American Art, Hampton University, VA, Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art, Africana Studies, Cornell University, NY, Journal of American Studies, Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK, and Black Renaissance Noire, Africana Studies, New York University.
