Location: Ellen Johnson Gallery (directions)
Works from the United States, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa explore the complexities of memory, identity, and belonging in the wake of the transatlantic slave trade. The exhibition—commemorating 400 years since the first captive Africans stepped ashore in the colonial U.S.—places contemporary artworks in dialogue with historical objects, giving context to the concerns of artists investigating this history and its continued relevance.
