Featuring more than one hundred works by nearly eighty artists from the 1920s to the present, “Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio Museum in Harlem” surveys nearly a century of creative achievements by artists of African descent. This landmark exhibition explores the vital contributions of these artists, proposing a plurality of narratives of Black artistic production and multiple approaches to understanding these works.

The exhibition draws from the unparalleled collections of the renowned Studio Museum in Harlem. The UMFA is one of just six museums in the United States who will host this dynamic exhibition.
