Never Has She Ever: Renee Cox
September 21, 2008 - December 7, 2008
2008-09 Estelle Lebowitz Visiting Artist-in-Residence
Renowned contemporary American photographer Renée Cox, celebrates black womanhood at the same time she challenges the roles assigned to Blacks and women in our culture. She is one of the most controversial African-American artists working today, using her own body to celebrate black womanhood and criticize a society she often views as racist and sexist. When Yo Mamma’s Last Supper was shown at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, Mayor Rudolph Guiliani wanted it removed and created a commission to restrict such works supported by public funds.
This exhibition is part of the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series.
