Description

This exhibition examines the representation of Black women over the past two centuries and makes visible Black women’s presence in American art history. This major traveling exhibition was organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and curated by art historian Elizabeth S. Humphrey. Selected artists include Edmonia Lewis, Elizabeth Catlett, Alma Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, Mickalene Thomas, and LaToya Ruby Frazier. There Is a Woman in Every Color provides an opportunity to place art by Black women in conversation with one another, showcasing their exploration of personhood, issues of identity, and resistance to certain modes of representation or classification.

DelArt invited Ms. Humphrey, now a Ph.D. candidate in Art History at the University of Delaware, to expand the exhibition with examples from DelArt’s permanent collection. Her selections date from the 1940s through 2021, and include compelling works by Sonya Clark, Edward Loper Sr., Faith Ringgold, and Joyce J. Scott. Bringing together 60 works of art from the two institutions, the dynamic display in DelArt’s Fusco Gallery will feature paintings, photographs, sculptures, textiles, and a variety of printmaking techniques.

This exhibition was organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and is presented with generous support provided by Art Bridges. This exhibition is supported in Delaware by the Krahmer American Art Exhibition Fund, the TD Charitable Foundation, and PNC Arts Alive. This organization is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on www.DelawareScene.com.
