April 30–September 4, 2016
Posing Beauty in African American Culture is curated by Deborah Willis and organized by Curatorial Assistance, Pasadena, California.
You’re posing for the camera. How do you want to be seen? Distinguished. Thoughtful. Stylish. Outrageous. Celebratory. Proud.
In Posing Beauty, a century of photographs by a wide range of image-makers—photojournalists, artists, men, and women—explore beauty and highlight how we see ourselves and are seen by others.
Among the many distinguished photographers represented in this group exhibition are Anthony Barboza, Sheila Pree Bright, Leonard Freed, Charles “Teenie” Harris, Russell Lee, Jamel Shabazz, Hank Willis Thomas, Mickalene Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, and Ernest C. Withers.
Join us for a celebratory opening on April 29 (6-8pm). Be bold and beautiful!
