She’s So Articulate: Black Women Artists Reclaim the Narrative

Liberation of Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben\"

Eleven emerging and established African American artists showcase their work in the exhibit “She’s So Articulate” at the Arlington Arts Center in Virginia.

Curated by Henry Thaggert, the show seeks to “expand how gallery-goers think about the relation of narrative to contemporary art by African-American women,” and continue the discussions of issues raised by artist Kara Walker’s racially charged cut-outs.

The exhibit runs until July 19th and features works from the artists: Maya Asante, Renee Cox, Stephanie Dinkins, Djakarta, Nekisha Durrett, Torkwase Dyson, Faith Ringgold, Erika Ranee, Nadine Robinson, Renee Stout, and Lauren Woods.
