Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
I am a sculptor, installation artist, videographer and photographer. My work renders elements of personal history and persona that have universal relevance. ... My subjects are often my Afro-Cuban relatives as well as myself. My themes are cross cultural and cross generational; race and gender expressed in symbols of matriarchy and maternity are thematic ideas.María Magdalena Campos-Pons (ABOVE: Photo by Cornell Watson)

"Hans van Miegroet was a gifted artist, art historian, and creative thinker in numerous fields from the humanities to the social and natural sciences and law. His research on emerging Art Markets was grounded in questions of copyright, cultural heritage, visual culture, and new research strategies and modes of interpretation. When he once served as Chair of the Department, he expanded Art & Art History to include Visual Studies. Hans was a loving father of two children, a supportive colleague, and friend. His kindness, memorable playfulness, and wry sense of humor was unparalleled. He will be acutely missed.” — Kristine Stiles, France Family Distinguished Professor, longtime friend of the Nasher Museum, guest curator and member of the Collections Committee of the museum’s national Board of Advisors.
