Meet Monique Wells, president of the non-profit association Les Amis de Beauford Delaney. A longtime friend of Reid Hall, she was instrumental in bringing an exhibition of painter Beauford Delaney's work to the Paris Center in 2016, as well as a reading of a recent play documenting the artist's life, Amazing Grace is Yellow by Silver Wainhouse.

What role does art production play in contemporary geopolitics? How does the global art market reflect changes in a nation’s political, economic and cultural influence? French gallery owner Nathalie Obadia responded to these questions and more in her conversation with artist Valérie Belin.

The Center organized a send-off event for graduate and undergraduate students newly admitted to Columbia University in partnership with Columbia Alumni Association of India’s Mumbai Chapter. With more than 80 attendees, the event gave students a chance to interact with their peers and Columbia alumni, and learn more about student life at Columbia.
