The Wolfsonian FIU presents Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance

February 12

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until June 23 2024

November 17, 2023–June 23, 2024
The Wolfsonian–FIU @ 1001 Washington Avenue

The flourishing of literary, visual, and musical arts between the 1920s and ’40s known as the Harlem Renaissance projected a new picture of Black life to the world. Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance considers the role of art in this movement, paying special attention to collaboration between artists and writers on illustrated books—works that reached a broad audience with stories and images that challenged demeaning stereotypes and asserted African Americans’ capacity for self-determination.

Curated by Christopher Norwood, founder of Hampton Art Lovers, in consultation with Shawn Christian, professor of English at Florida International University, and Wolfsonian staff. Sponsored by Cowles Charitable Trust, Tamara L. Harris Foundation, and Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau Art of Black Miami.
