Black Pulp!

Black Pulp!

From Friday, February 2, 2018 to Sunday, April 29, 2018 February 2, 2018 April 29, 2018 The Rittenhouse

Black Pulp! is an unprecedented overview of over a century (1912–2016) of image production by Black artists and publishers, and non-Black artists and publishers who foreground the Black experience. The exhibition sets historical material in dialogue with contemporary art that together explore the creative and strategic use of printed media. This ranges from small-run magazines, novels, posters, and comic books, to traditional and experimental fine art prints that—along with other mediums on view—challenge racist narratives and preconceived notions of Black experience.
