The spring 2018 exhibition of the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art.

The Cooper Gallery spring 2018 exhibition features an interpretive version of the remarkable installation, ReSignificationsby our guest curator, Awam Ampka.

ReSignifications links classical and popular representations of African bodies in European art, culture and history as it interprets and interrogates the “Blackamoor” trope in Western culture that emerged at the intersection of cross-cultural encounters shaped by centuries of migration, exchange, conquest, servitude, and exile.
