Exhibition “Unnamed Figures: Black Presence and Absence in the Early American North”

Unnamed Figures: Black Presence and Absence in the Early American North is on view through March 24, 2024. As a corrective to histories that define slavery and anti-Black racism as a largely Southern issue, this exhibition offers a new window into Black representation in a region that is often overlooked in narratives of early African American history.

Exhibition “Marvels of My Own Inventiveness”

Marvels of My Own Inventiveness will feature an immersive viewing of approximately 22 paintings by five contemporary Black artists in the American Folk Art Museum collection: Leonard Daley, Claude Lawrence, J.B. Murray, Mary T. Smith, and Purvis Young. By positioning these artists in conversation with one another, the exhibition will explore the artistic self-expression of Black makers working in and around abstraction.
