Opening Day | Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now

Saturday, April 27, 2019

10 AM

Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now fuses the history of silhouette portraiture and its interpretation in contemporary art in beautiful and thought-provoking ways. The exhibition features three well-known contemporary artists, Kara Walker, Camille Utterback, and Kumi Yamashita, who reexamine and reimagine the silhouette to broaden our understanding of its power in the past and in the present.

Organized by the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
Museum Hours: Tues.-Sat., 10 AM-5 PM, and Sun., noon-5 PM
