Jump past Instagram images to the footer. Continuing MHC’s campus wide celebrations of #BlackHistoryMonth we are thrilled to highlight our recent acquisition of two works by artist @alexandriasmithstudio “UnearThings I” (2019) and “The Rooting Place” (2019)!

Smith is a mixed media visual artist working in London and New York City. Her practice is largely centered on a lexicon of visual semiotics the artist developed to address the complexities of black identity. Both works in MHCAM's collection are part of a larger body “Monuments to an Effigy”, an immersive installation that explores the legacies of the historic Olde Town of Flushing Burial Ground, which was used as a cemetery for black and indigenous Americans in the late 19th century, and the Macedonia A.M.E. Church in Flushing. The Burial Ground was paved over to make space for a playground by the Parks Department in the 1930s, a troubling history Smith interrogates through the lens of black female subjectivity, memory, and myth. Alexandria Smith’s work, brought into the collection in December, invites us to do the important work of black history, commemoration, and memory all day every day.

“The Rooting Place” will be installed with a selection of contemporary works from MHCAM's permanent collection in the fall of this year. This exhibit is curated by @ssparlingwilliams and titled Modern and Contemporary Art: Proposition, Form, Gesture. 💥FLASHBACK FRIDAY to a very special #teachingwithart experience: Jessica Sidman’s Rigidity Theory class built their own Tensegrity models inspired by MHCAM’s Kenneth Snelson sculpture, “Wing 1” (1992). Tensegrity is a structural principle coined in the 1960s by architect Buckminster Fuller to describe the unique rigid and flexible elements of Snelson’s sculptures. 👁 Sightlines Tour SATURDAY (2/22) @ 1:30pm in the galleries!
