what if

An immersive exhibition that explores the expansiveness of interiority through personal curiosity, as evidenced in Black artists’ visual narratives. This exhibition focuses on the ways the artists remain curious, imaginative, and authentic to self, despite outside perceptions of Black art, highlighting their sources of curiosity through interior monologues that flirt with ideas of time, ritual, tradition, and playful expressions of self and emotion. Through artwork, spaces for convening, and programming, what if invites visitors to be curious and consider how these artists have come to understand themselves and their worlds, away from the stereotyping of Black art, by tending to their curiosities and inner selves.
