Still Raising Hell: The Art, Activism, and Archives of Camille Billops and James V. Hatch
Opening reception, Thurs., Sept. 15, 2016, 6:30 p.m.
As artists, activists, and collectors, Billops and Hatch have been raising hell for more than 50 years—elevating public consciousness around “isms” that have shaped American culture, politics, and identities. Since 2002 the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library has been home to the comprehensive collection—playscripts, photographs, works of art, and more—of these two leading stewards of African American history.
The exhibition, curated by Pellom McDaniels, III, will reflect on the dynamic couple’s commitment to speaking truth to power and explore the meaning and purpose of African American art. On display from September 15, 2016 through May 14, 2017, the exhibition and accompanying public programs will provoke thought and spark dialogue in the spirit of Billops and Hatch.
Join us and help bring to life a treasure trove of materials that illuminates the African American experience from the late 19th century to the present.
