Special Exhibition Opening: Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now
September 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for an exclusive first look at Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now, an exhibition that explores the previously unstudied art form of the silhouette by investigating its deep historical roots and considering its forceful presence today. Black Out presents historic silhouettes from the collection of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery and other institutions alongside works by contemporary artists who are reimagining the silhouettes in bold and unforgettable ways.
