COLLECTING BLACK STUDIES:

THE EXHIBITION

January 21 - June 15, 2021

Curated by Lise Ragbir

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Collecting Black Studies: the Exhibition takes cues from the Art Galleries at Black Studies’ recent publication, Collecting Black Studies: The Art of Material Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. As with the publication, this exhibition is organized around four central themes—abstraction, identity, resistance and transition. Each section is thoughtfully contextualized with short written passages penned by Professor of Art History Eddie Chambers. Some of the works on view are featured in the publication, and others are recent acquisitions we are pleased to present for the first time in the Christian-Green Gallery.
