Join the Moody for the opening of Radical Revisionists: Contemporary African Artists Confronting Past and Present, an exhibition that addresses the violent erasure of marginalized histories and the ways in which artists reinterpret familiar themes through contemporary, Afrocentric lenses. Featured artists include Sammy Baloji, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Omar Victor Diop, Adama Delphine Fawundu, Zanele Muholi, Robin Rhode, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Mary Sibande, and Pascale Marthine Tayou.

Complimentary beverages will be served

This event is free and open to the public

The exhibition is timed to coincide with the establishment of Rice’s newly formed Center for African and African American Studies (CAAS) and scheduled to be on view during Houston’s FotoFest Biennial 2020 - African Cosmologies: Photography, Time, and the Other, opening in March.
