Nine Moments for Now at The Cooper Gallery

Curated by Dell Marie Hamilton
at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art
Opening Reception: 30 October, 2018, 6 pm

In conjunction with the For Freedoms/50 States Initiative founded by Eric Gottesman and Hank Willis Thomas, this upcoming exhibition “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.
