And I Must Scream
The Monstrous Expression of our Global Crises
Thought-provoking exhibition developed by Dr. Amanda H. Hellman, the museum’s curator of African art. The show features photographs, sculptures, paintings, drawings, and site-specific installations from ten local, national and international contemporary artists.
Employing monstrous, grotesque, and humanoid figures and forms, the works engage five themes—corruption and human rights violations, displacement, environmental destruction, the pandemic, and renewal. This exhibition acts as a call-to-action and shows these crises to be both urgent and interconnected. The accompanying programming will bring scholars and artists from around the world to teach classes, facilitate performances, and create new works of art.
This exhibition has been made possible through generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Charles S. Ackerman Fund, the Carlos Museum National Leadership Board, the Massey Charitable Trust, the LUBO Fund, and anonymous donors.
