On view in Stone Gallery from November 4, 2020 - February 19, 2021. As, Not For: Dethroning Our Absolutes is an incomplete historical survey of work created by African-American graphic designers over the last century. These practitioners are absent in too many classroom lectures, and their methods mostly invisible or uncredited in the field. This exhibition aims to promote the inclusion of neglected Black designers and their developed methodologies and challenge the ubiquity of White and anti-Black aesthetics in our designed world. Curated by Jerome Harris in collaboration with Mary Yang and BU Graphic Design students. The newly renovated Stone Gallery has opened its doors to BU students, staff, and faculty, with the implementation of a few safety requirements including a designated entrance, social distancing, and mandatory mask-wearing. Virtual tours of the exhibitions will be available online at bu.edu/art. Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Friday (11:00am – 5:00pm)
- Stone Gallery, 855 Commonwealth Ave.
