"Spectrum". Spectrum is centered around exploring the various relationships black folks have with the gender binary or lack thereof and the experiences that lie within or without those constructs. The exhibition runs from April 2nd to May 14th, 2022 with various programming throughout the six weeks and will take place within our Mitchell Gallery.
This show is an expansion and honestly a deconstruction of our past recurring exhibitions titled "Fiber" and "Thug", two shows that portrayed the various experiences of black women and men in contrast to how they are assumed to exist. "Spectrum" aims to hold space for these experiences as well as open the floor to the multiplicity of human expressions across the diaspora and time, something which our Indigenous African ancestors understood and honored before colonization.
