> DESCRIPTION

Double Exposure presents historic early photographs side by side with photo-based works by contemporary African American artists. While early photographers pushed the boundaries of the medium to represent a Black world of hope and dignity, contemporary artists celebrate and extend that legacy, engaging in a dialogue about the nature of memory and photographic representation in relation to personal history. This exhibition was organized by the Amistad Center for Art and Culture and sponsored by Aetna.
