Speak to Me of Rivers

February 27 - March 3, 2019

An Exploration of Race, Identity, and Lived Experience in Contemporary African American Art

Inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem, A Negro Speaks of Rivers, the exhibition Speak To Me Of Rivers explores visual narratives of African American history and culture through the subjectivity of African-American artists. Curated by Kiara Hill, UMCA Graduate Assistant & PhD student in Afro-American Studies, and in partnership with the UMass Afro-American Studies Department, this interactive exhibition features work from the UMCA permanent collection by artists including LaToya Ruby Frazier, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lorna Simpson.
