Black Artists and Collage: A Conversation

Wednesday, March 2, 2022, 5-6 p.m. EST
Mechanical Hall Gallery (in person event)

​Explore the significance of collage for Black artists during this conversation with Teri Henderson, a Baltimore-based curator and writer and the founding director of the Black Collagists Arts Incubator, and Danielle Canter, art history doctoral candidate and guest curator of the exhibition Gathered Together: Black Artists and the Collage Aesthetic.

During the discussion, Henderson will speak to her efforts to highlight the work of Black collage artists, and Canter will speak about the exhibition on view in Mechanical Hall Gallery that she recently curated.

The medium of collage offers artists an inventive means of constructing a work of art, often incorporating everyday materials and found objects, such as newspapers, photographs and fabric. Gathered Together: Black Artists and the Collage Aesthetic explores the practice and visual strategies of collage, highlighting the University’s collection of African American art.

The event is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences, Paul R. Jones Initiative (PRJI).
