Margaret Rose Vendryes entered the faculty of York College and The Graduate Center in 2000. She is the author of Barthé, A Life in Sculpture (2008). Vendryes returned to York College, in 2013, as Distinguished Lecturer in Fine Arts and Director of the York College Fine Arts Gallery after a seven-year absence. During that time, Vendryes established a successful studio practice enhanced by her scholarly engagement with African aesthetics and its intersection with popular black music and visual culture.
