BLACK AESTHETICS: Art that Binds Us: West Africa and Diaspora Art
Features works of art by African Americans, Haitians and Jamaican artists. The goal of this exhibition is to illuminate through the visual arts (paintings, drawings, prints, photography, and graphic arts) the socio/political, aesthetics and the artistic/cultural production of the African Diaspora. Hopefully, the exhibition will initiate critical thinking, engaging conversations, and challenging questions concerning the development of Black Aesthetics and the transposition of Africanness to the Western Hemisphere via the Atlantic Slave Trade.
January 31 - March 3
