Mario Moore, Red, Black and Green Armor, 2017

Imagine how I felt when my Aunt Meigan revealed that one of my favorite actresses of all time is also a family member! (Guyana is a small country, after all!)

Icons: Ideals of Black Masculinity
An Exhibition from the Collection of CCH Pounder at Xavier University Art Gallery

The opening reception for ICONS is free and open to the public.
The Xavier University and Greater New Orleans Community are invited to experience this extraordinary collection of works by such world-renowned artists as Yinka Shonibare, Kehinde Wiley, Mickalene Thomas,

Elizabeth Catlett, Malick Sidibé, and Edouard Duvall Carrié. Presenting a vibrant range of reflections of the Black masculine, this exhibit challenges the viewer to re-examine both traditional gender archetypes and contemporary representation in the media, in order to form a more multifaceted, inclusive image of the nuances and diversity of the Black masculine in today’s global society. The exhibit will run from November 1, 2018 to February 28, 2019 and is open to the public from 10am-4pm Monday thru Friday.

In September 2018, the second exhibit from The CCH Pounder Collection opened at the Xavier University Center so students and faculty could enjoy and experience a selection of diverse works of art. The exhibit, which includes 18 works, was curated by Ms. Pounder and features such artists as Firelei Baez, Getahun Assafa, Tony Ramos, Kimani Beckford, and Kine Aw, representing art from both Africa and the Diaspora. The current exhibit, located on the second floor of the University Center is open to the public from 10 am to 4 pm Monday thru Friday. ICONS: Ideals of Black Masculinity marks the third exhibit from The CCH Pounder Collection at Xavier University in less than two years. @cchpounder
