#SayHerName: Watch Us Werk

  • VanderNoot Gallery (map)

Lesley University's College of Art and Design presents #SayHerName: Watch Us Werk in the VanDernoot Gallery from March 20 to April 21. 

Whether following in the footsteps of playwright Lorraine Hansberry, remixing the aesthetics of black girlhood, invoking the symbolic capacities of the color blue as signifier of the West African orisha, Yemaya, or using participatory installations to engage audiences, each of these artists are driven by one vision: a deep desire to use art in service of creating a more just society. Their rigorous practices interrogate how the construct of race informs their conceptions of selfhood, personal memory, gender, queerness, and global history. As such this exhibition places their work into conversation and context in an effort to rewrite and transcend the rules of how artistic production operates in the public realm.
