Main Gallery Exhibition: Cold Hands, Warm Heart: Myths of Black Womanhood by Deirdre Darden

Sunday, January 26, 2020

Curator Deirdre Darden has assembled a thoughtful and poignant group exhibition featuring artists: Elena Casey, Amber Robles-Gordon, Helina Metaferia, Tsedaye Makonnen.

To have "cold hands and a warm heart" means to appear stern on the outside while being truly tender within. Black women are often accused of being intimidating, mad, or stern yet equally given a nurturing, mothering label. This multidisciplinary group exhibition will examine the double consciousness that black people, especially woman possess. Removing the mask we wear to reveal what is really underneath; the side we give to our families, communities, and ancestral worlds.
