The Gallery is now closed - Please visit us for our next exhibition:

This exhibition explores the contested ways in which African and African American beauty have been represented in historical and contemporary contexts through a diverse range of media including photography, film, video, fashion, advertising, and other forms of popular culture such as music and the internet. Posing Beauty in African American Culture challenges contemporary understandings of beauty by framing notions of aesthetics, race, class, and gender within art, popular culture, and politics.


This exhibition will be on display at the Driskell Center from February 1, 2019 through April 27, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, January 31, from 5-7 pm.
