CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

FALL 2016

Dark Humor: Joyce J. Scott and Peter Williams

This exhibition was inspired by a recent show at the Delaware Art Museum entitled Dark Humor: African American Art from the University Museums, University of Delaware curated by Tiffany Barber. Barber explored the works of black artists who employ “satire, visual puns, farce, absurdity, kitsch, and the bizarre,” to “upend social and aesthetic conventions.” Both Scott and Williams were included in that exhibition; they continue to address issues of racism, violence and stereotypes in their art production.

MFA Exhibition: Hasani Claxton: Rise of the Afrotaku

MFA candidate Hasani Claxton uses satire to examine popular (mis)conceptions of blackness in contemporary society. In his paintings and sculptures, he seeks out cultural intersectionalities between Blerds (Black Nerds) and Otaku (Japanese Nerds), combining the distinctive visual language of Anime and Manga with Western realism.
 

 

MFA Exhibition: Emily Dierkes: Busy Work

MFA candidate Emily Dierkes creates multilayered fabric, paint, and resin paintings, sculptures, and floor pieces. Combining traditionally identified masculine and feminine materials, she explores both formal and conceptual concerns based in ideas of "women's work."
