To support the exhibition Unnamed Figures: Black Presence and Absence in Early American Vernacular Art at the American Folk Art Museum. The exhibition aims to redress a persistent inequity by centering interpretation on the Black subjects who are represented (or obscured) in the early American artworks displayed in the exhibition—with the understanding that definitive answers may elude us. A scholarly catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
