ARTH 080. Blackness In and Out of the Museum

Cross-List: BLST 009
This course introduces students to the history of black art and the representation of blackness in the American museum. Black art has been at various times excluded from, segregated within, and problematically embraced by museums. Black artists, curators, and activists have found ways to challenge these institutions’ racial politics, while also creating networks, models, and venues for showcasing black artists’ works and processes to their communities of concern. This class will take stock of this history and its relationship to the current moment of recognition black artists face.
