Drawing on the Museum’s collection and select loans from local private collectors, Black Like Who? explores depictions of the black race in American Art from the early 19th century to the present day. Comprising work by both white and black artists, the exhibition will examine a variety of historical and contemporary works, and discuss how they evince both the motives and beliefs of the artists, as well as the racial attitudes of their time. Black Like Who? will also look closely at the myriad ways in which contemporary artists have responded to the legacy of racial imagery with irony, by incorporating stereotypes and caricature in their own work.
