A Picture Gallery of the Soul
September 13 – December 10, 2022
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota presents A Picture Gallery of the Soul, a group exhibition of African American artists whose work incorporates the photographic medium. Sampling a range of photographic expression from traditional photography to mixed media and conceptual art and spanning a timeframe that includes the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, A Picture Gallery of the Soul will honor, celebrate, investigate and interpret Black history, culture and politics in America. The exhibition title comes from the Lecture on Pictures, delivered by Frederick Douglass in Boston in 1861. A Picture Gallery of the Soul is organized by independent curator Herman Milligan and Howard Oransky, Director of the Katherine E. Nash Gallery.
