Art Exhibition Explores Black Self-Representation

HUNTER COLLEGE–The traveling art exhibit, “The Black Index” made its way to Hunter College last month.

Slated to end on April 3, the mixed media show includes drawing, printmaking, sculpture and digital technology from several black artists, with the aim to confront the viewer with their own expectations of Black figuration. 

Hunter Athenian reporter Melina Giorgalletou details how the project came to be and how students are connecting with the artwork.
