Temporary Exhibitions, Jaffe and Hall Galleries
Featuring large-scale photographs printed in ink on muslin and canvas, this exhibition highlights the work of internationally renowned visual artist and contemporary photographer Carrie Mae Weems, along with a rich selection of photographs from Frances Benjamin Johnston's historic Hampton Album of 1900. The work of these two women, although distanced by time and race, is linked by their shared discipline and focus on the history and legacy of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute (now Hampton University), founded with the mission to educate African Americans and, later, Native Americans.
