Posing Beauty in African American Culture (September 5 – December 7, 2013) is a nationally touring exhibition curated by Dr. Deborah Willis, one of the nation’s leading historians of African American photography. Featuring more than 75 photographs by leading, emerging, and amateur photographers, Posing Beauty explores the ways in which our contemporary understanding of beauty has been informed by photographers and artists working from 1890 to the present. It prompts rich discussions about the contested ways that African and African American beauty have been represented in historical and contemporary contexts.

Posing Beauty in African American Culture is curated by Deborah Willis and organized by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions, Pasadena, California. The Museum acknowledges support from

wish and LOBO Fund

Exhibition-related programs are made possible by The Mary Alice and Bennett Brown Foundation, Inc.
