Working History Exhibit and More Artist Talks at Reed

From January 22 - March 2, 2008, the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery presents Working History, African American Objects, an exploration of African American art and material culture that exhibits contemporary African American art alongside historical ephemera. The exhibition is curated by Cooley Gallery director and curator Stephanie Snyder from U.S. collections, artists' studios, and regional archives.

Working History, African American Objects includes contemporary art created during the last twenty years, a time during which material and theoretical examinations of culture, politics, history, and identity came to the fore in American art. Each artist in Working History considers historical objects, forms, and narratives, often migrating subjects across disciplines, as when Kianga Ford collaborates with an abstract mathematician and a statistician in order to consider various definitions of race in American history.
