Black Womanhood: Images, Icons, and Ideologies of the African Body
UNITED STATES
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA  •  San Diego Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
Organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Black Womanhood is the first major exhibition to explore the direct relationship between historic and contemporary representations of the black female body as they have been expressed in both traditional African and modern Western art. The exhibition’s 130 works of art – prints, photographs, paintings, sculpture, video, and installations – reveal how ideologies and realities of race, gender, identity, and sexuality have been constructed, critiqued and transformed through visual representations of the black female body from the nineteenth century to the present.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 370-page illustrated catalogue published by the Hood Museum of Art in association with the University of Washington Press.
