PICTURING BLACK GIRLHOOD: MOMENTS OF POSSIBILITY is an international exhibition that features more than eighty Black women, girls, and genderqueer artists—ranging in age from 8 to 94—who work in the mediums of photography and film and have a sustained practice exploring the theme of Black girlhood. By bringing together iconic image-makers, emerging artists, and young photographers (over half the artists in the show are under 18), the show considers Black girlhood as an essential stage of development, an integral moment of political awakening, an embattled site of representation, and a critical source of artistic inspiration around the world. 

This exhibition features the works by Photography & Imaging students Cyrah Joseph, Stevia Ndoe, and Jada Rodriguez, on view February 17 to July 2, 2022.

Exhibition Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 12-5 pm, Thursday 12-8 pm, Saturday 12-5 pm. Admission is free.
