Century: 100 Years of Black Art at Montclair Art Museum

February 9 – July 7, 2024

“Century is organized around six major themes highlighting how art has long been a living, generative force in Black life. We  explore the importance of Black Portraiture over the past hundred years and its central role in the project of crafting Black identities while subverting reductive, often racist, portrayals of Blackness. African Diasporic Consciousness brings together objects that work explicitly and implicitly to transmit cultural values, practices, symbols, and philosophies that have persisted and thrived across vast distances from a shared homeland. Archival Memory considers the capacity of objects—constructed, found, or reimagined—to document and preserve this consciousness.”
