Collection David C. Driskell Papers
System of arrangement Files are arranged alphabetically by title of exhibition.
Description The material in this sub-series focuses on Prof. Driskell's work as a curator. In his professional life, Prof. Driskell was often hired as a curator or guest curator for exhibitions focusing on African American art. These exhibitions often traveled around the United States after their initial showing at the host institution. The exhibitions represented in this sub-series are as follows: "Amistad II: Afro American Art," "Aspects of Afro-American Realism After the Harlem Renaissance," "Contemporary Visual Expressions," "Harlem Renaissance: The Art of Black America," "Hidden Heritage: Afro-American Art, 1800-1950," "Introspectives: Contemporary Art by Americans and Brazilians of African Descent," "The Art of Black America in Japan," and "Two Centuries of Black American Art." In the interest of brevity and ease of use, the title of each exhibition has been shortened for use on the folder titles. The records for these exhibitions contain correspondence, contracts/agreements, ephemera, photographs, catalogues, notes, and curatorial files. Beyond the major exhibitions listed above, this sub-series also contains materials relating to smaller exhibitions that Prof. Driskell curated at Fisk University and various other institutions. There are also a number of exhibition catalogues for which Prof. Driskell wrote Forewords and Introductions. These can be found at the end of the sub-series, arranged by date of the exhibition. Note that these records are not comprehensive in scope of Prof. Driskell's curatorial work.
