Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance

Wolfsonian-FIU

Sun, March 17th @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm EDT

Harlem Renaissance Wolfsonian

The flourishing of literary, visual, and musical arts between the 1920s and ’40s known as the Harlem Renaissance projected a new picture of Black life to the world.

Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance considers the role of art in this movement, paying special attention to the collaboration between artists and writers on illustrated books—works that reached a broad audience with stories and images that challenged demeaning stereotypes and asserted African Americans’ capacity for self-determination.

Curated by Christopher Norwood, founder of Hampton Art Lovers, in consultation with Shawn Christian, professor of English at Florida International University, and Wolfsonian staff.

Sponsored by Cowles Charitable Trust, Tamara L. Harris Foundation, and Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau Art of Black Miami.
