Contributions by African Americans to the field of graphic design have often been overlooked. This exhibit acts as an “incomplete historical survey” of Black designers’ work. Taking inspiration from Alain Locke’s seminal 1925 book of critique The New Negro and a small multidisciplinary exhibition from the 1970s called Ritual: Baptismal in Black, As, Not For questions the ubiquity of whiteness in the designed world and what it means for Black “expressive design practice” to be excluded from the field. You can expect to see printed ephemera made by Black designers like Art Sims, Laini (Sylvia) Abernathy, and Emory Douglas that have been scaled up to poster size. by Stranger Staff Writer Jas Keimig
