Art Exhibition Explores Black Self-Representation

Seeing Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle’s “The Evanesced: The Untouchables” at the Hunter College’s Galleries exhibition, “The Black Index,” made student Carley Nicoletti feel moved. “I do feel in awe of a lot of the artwork here because it’s really mesmerizing,” Nicoletti said.

The mixed media show includes drawing, printmaking, sculpture and digital technology, with the aim to confront the viewer with their own expectations of Black figuration. 

This traveling group display, curated by Bridget R. Cooks, features artworks by digital artist Dennis Delgado, sculptor Alicia Henry, painters Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle and Titus Kaphar and drawing artists Whitfield Lovell and Lava Thomas. 

“Artists are the visionaries that are going to help us survive on a daily basis but to, also, envision a better future,” said Cooks. The exhibit is up until April 3.
