One more night see Spelman Museum’s ‘Undercover’

spelman1

DeLuxe by artist Ellen Gallagher is in Spelman Museum's "Undercover" exhibition.

The exhibition is closed, but there’s one more chance to see Spelman Museum’s “Undercover: Performing and Transforming Black Female Identities” this week.

Why?

  • Because the Spelman Museum is a fantastic space to peruse, but easy to miss if you’re not often on campus.
  • Because the show was curated by locals:  Spelman Museum director Andrea Barnwell Brownlee and Atlantan Karen Comer Lowe.
  • Because its ideas are worth pondering and discussing, especially in Atlanta and the Atlanta University Center.
  • Because this exhibition involves myriad forms and media, enough to surprise and satisfy a variety of artistic interests.
  • Because critic Catherine Fox called it “terrific” and “exemplary,”  explaining that “ideas bounce and ricochet off one another with the energy of a handball game.”
  • Because it’s gone for good after the closing reception on Dec. 10. On to another show next semester!

Here’s a video tour with the curator:

Want to go? “Undercover: Performing and Transforming Black Female Identities” closing reception, 6:30 p.m. Dec. 10. $3 suggested donation, RSVPs requested to
