Speak To Me Of Rivers
February 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - March 3, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem, “A Negro Speaks of Rivers,” the exhibition Speak to Me of Rivers explores visual narratives of African American history and culture through the subjectivity of African-American artists.
Curated by Kiara Hill, UMCA Graduate Assistant and PhD student in Afro-American Studies, and in partnership with the UMass Afro-American Studies Department, this interactive exhibition features work from the UMCA permanent collection by artists including LaToya Ruby Frazier, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lorna Simpson.
