Opening Reception:
Looming Chaos and UNBOUND

Date: Saturday, January 25th, 2020
Time: 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

In a unique collaboration, the School of Art and Design’s Zuckerman Museum of Art and Clark Atlanta University Art Museum have combined forces to present the inaugural exhibitions of the Tina Dunkley Fellowship in American Art: "UNBOUND," curated by Nzinga Simmons, and "Looming Chaos," curated by TK Smith. The exhibitions approach abstraction and its utility in interrogating identity, politics, and artistic expression. 

The multi-institutional, cross-regional curatorial fellowship is a collaborative project between Clark Atlanta University Art Museum (CAUAM), the Zuckerman Museum of Art (ZMA), and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) and is supported by the Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative (DAMLI.) Created by Dr. Maurita Poole (CAUAM,) the late Justin Rabideau (ZMA,) and Brooke Davis Anderson (PAFA,) the fellowship is meant to foster the next generation of museum professionals.

Please join the Zuckerman Museum of Art in celebrating the opening of our spring exhibitions!
