On view Fall 2018
Curated by Dell Marie Hamilton, "Nine Moments for Now" is an exhibition at the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art, a fellow institute of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. "[The exhibition] brings together contemporary art and modernist approaches to the question of how artists engage in political speech. In other words, what do freedom and liberation look like in the wake of Black Lives Matter and the astounding uncertainties of the Trump era? As with all cultural transformations, artists have been at the forefront of creating meaningful and complex responses to social engagement and civic discourse."
What is the History Design Studio?
The History Design Studio is a year-long workshop for developing, critiquing, and producing new projects in multimedia history. Workshops include group discussion, collaborative brainstorming, rapid prototyping exercises, and formal and informal group critique sessions with guest critics.
In addition to being a physical studio space in the Hutchins Center, equipped with hardware and software for multimedia production, HDS is also a community and network of like-minded scholars, invested in collaborative work and experimental narrative forms. All Harvard students and affiliates are welcome to participate. No design or art experience is necessary.
