Exhibition | Uncensored

20apr(apr 20)7:30 pm12jun(jun 12)6:00 pmExhibition | UncensoredAn exhibition exploring Black political commentary through the lens of comedy and satire

Event Details

Dark humor is nothing short of brilliant within African-American culture, whether it be literary works, compelling illustrations, unapologetic stand-up or sketch comedies that propel us forward. These vehicles, often created in direct opposition to the threat of Black life, safety and freedom, are rooted in the social practice of community organizing for the sake of informing the unaware while inciting dialogue, protest, and joy.

We explore these methods by which knowledge is disseminated and calls to action are activated in this interactive survey of Black political commentary through the lens of comedy and satirical media from the late 1800s through present day.

 

ON VIEW: April 20 – June 12, 2023

LOCATION: MoCADA, 80 Hanson Place Brooklyn

 

Presented by The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA). Made possible thanks to generous gifts from The Ford Foundation, Art Dealers Association of America, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development.
