The Rutgers Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities and the Zimmerli Art Museum are presenting an exhibition this semester titled, Collective Yearning: Black Women Artists from the Zimmerli Art Museum, on view from September 6 – December 14, 2022. There will be a series of events during the fall semester highlighting this important exhibition.

Featuring prints, photographs, and multimedia artworks, this exhibition is the first time the university has conducted a comprehensive and methodical review of its holdings of art by Black women artists. Many of the artists have ties to New Jersey, New York City, and Philadelphia, ranging from canonical figures such as Rutgers faculty and artists Emma Amos and Kara Walker, to emerging artists Nona Faustine, Atisha Fordyce, and Daonne Huff. It includes works by over 20 Black Women Artists spread across two venues- the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series at Douglass Library and the Focus Gallery at the Zimmerli Art Museum.
The exhibition is curated by Dr. Amber Wiley, Assistant Professor, Art History, Rutgers University, and her students Jasmine Daria Cannon, Kyle b. co., Helen Gao, Grace Lynne Haynes, Emily Hu, Grace Kim, Desiree Morales, Michael Randall, and Audrey Roclore.
