Nine Moments for Now
The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art
102 Mount Auburn St.
Fri., Jan. 11, 2019, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“Nine Moments for Now” brings together contemporary art and modernist approaches to the question of how artists engage in political speech. In other words, what do freedom and liberation look like in the wake of Black Lives Matter and the astounding uncertainties of the Trump era? As with all cultural transformations, artists have been at the forefront of creating meaningful and complex responses to social engagement and civic discourse.
The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the “For Freedoms/50 States” Initiative founded by Eric Gottesman and Hank Willis Thomas. forfreedoms.org
