About Things Loved Blackness and Belonging

Share this page:
Featuring creations by black artists in the collections of BAMPFA and the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology, this exhibition highlights works by Peter Bradley, Erica Deeman, Charles Gaines, Mildred Howard, Kamau Amu Patton, Raymond Saunders, Lorna Simpson, Carrie Mae Weems, and Fred Wilson, among others. Recognizing that museums have not been exempt from anti-black practices that exclude, marginalize, and devalue black art, black artists, and black life, About Things Loved imagines the liberatory possibilities of celebrating blackness and belonging.

This is the third in a series of annual exhibitions developed in collaboration with UC Berkeley classes.

Cal Conversations / About Things Loved: Blackness and Belonging is organized by students in the UC Berkeley graduate seminar Diaspora | Migration | Exile, with Associate Professors Lauren Kroiz and Leigh Raiford, cotaught through the Department of History of Art and the program in African Diaspora Studies. The exhibition was developed, in part, with a grant in support of art history graduate education and curatorial training from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
