Black Borders: Artists of Color, Reframing Culture

March 3 - May 5

Black Borders: Artists of Color, Reframing Culture, an exhibition featuring new video works and installations that both embrace and challenge notions of what it is to be a contemporary artist and a person of color. The practice of the participating artists navigates, supports and embodies this duality. What does it mean to be viewed as an African American artist, or a female artist of color? How do you make art that is your own within what is often considered a monolithic culture of Black art that is associated with the politics of race and social responsibility? These questions highlight the assumptions of audiences and the art-world expectations other artists, critics, curators and collectors.
