Gallery Exhibition: Resignifications (2-3 P.M.)
Thursday, April 19, 2018, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art
102 Mt. Auburn St
Linking classical and popular representations of African bodies in European art, culture and history, this multi-media art exhibition examines and deconstructs the image of the black body and includes contemporary artists who respond to the artists and designers of yore. Originally presented in 2015 at NYU’s Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy, the exhibition interprets the “Blackamoor” trope in Western culture. Meet at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art, 102 Mount Auburn Street, outside Harvard Square. BHV members and their guests. Free.
