Beverly Buchanan (1940–2015) produced landmark bodies of work, including cast concrete and mixed media sculptures, drawings and books, and evocative paintings and photographs. The artist explored themes of memory and historical injustice, monument and ruin, and the forms of southern vernacular architecture. Beverly Buchanan—Ruins and Rituals is the most comprehensive exhibition of Buchanan’s work to date.

Beverly Buchanan—Ruins and Rituals was organized by the Brooklyn Museum and curated by Jennifer Burris and Park McArthur. This presentation was adapted by the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art.
