Exhibition: '5 Takes on African Art/42 Flags' by Fred Wilson
Exhibition extended through April 29

Continuing a tradition of hosting challenging, exploratory exhibitions organized by student curatorial teams, this year’s team of graduate students have curated an exhibition of African art drawn from the collection of Charles Derby, a UMass alumnus who has been collecting African art since the 1970s, in tandem with an exhibition of Flags of Africa by the renowned African-American artist Fred Wilson. The five curators come from a variety of disciplines and contribute a multiplicity of viewpoints to the curatorial process. Working with a private collection, a collector, and a contemporary artist, this project offers a new model in exhibition curation, particularly in the way the conversation about African art is shared among the various disciplines on our campus, and how an artist can participate and inform the project in an innovative way.
