The Cooper Gallery

The Cooper Gallery We are a university gallery featuring African and African American contemporary art. The Cooper Gallery is free and open to the Public. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram: @coopergalleryhc

We feature contemporary African and African American art in exhibitions and installations imagined by curators, faculty, artists, and guests; in conversation with diverse cultures, art archives, and historical traditions.

Within our new gallery space designed by David Adjaye, our programming offers a myriad of events ranging from: local engagements, workshops, and artist talks; to symposia and lectures. We are a Harvard University Gallery and a part of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research.

Gordon Parks: Selections from the Dean Collection

How are the arts responsible for disrupting, complicating, or shifting narratives of visual representation in the public realm?

In 2019, the Vision & Justice Convening, founded by Associate Professor Sarah Lewis, asked of us to examine just that. The Vision & Justice Project is dedicated to examining art’s central role in understanding the relationship between race and citizenship in the United States. Frieze New York galleries and institutions have organized a multi-institution tribute to Vision & Justice Project and Founder Sarah Elizabeth Lewis through the month of May 2021. The intention of the Tribute is to expand the reach of the Vision & Justice Project and give potential new audiences access to a visual literacy that could change the way they see the world.

Check out the Cooper Gallery's contribution to this powerful tribute in the form of a review of our 2019 exhibition Gordon Parks: Selections from the Dean Collection, co-organized by the Gordon Parks Foundation, which we opened in tandem with the Vision & Justice Convening hosted at Harvard University. We are so grateful to be a part of honoring this groundbreaking project!

Join us for the Final Segment of the @drawingonloveandjustice Sketchbook Collective

✤ Drawing on Imagination: ✤
Use your creative tools to envision positive change for a more just future. Draw and share your vision of a future filled with new possibilities.







"I see imagination as a survival skill in times of darkness. In order to survive, we make changes that reconfigure the way we think and the way we act."

'Shifting Contours' is a series of images that deals with spatial re-imagination as a means to cultivate hope and to envisage radical possibilities. By applying warped perspectives and disorientation, I put my body in spaces where I find unrestricted mobility, comfort and sense of belonging. The black and white pictures in the composite photos are images of my childhood apartment and my hometown Hong Kong." - joanna_tam @joanna_tam

❖ Sketchbook Entry #3: Drawing Attention ❖

Join in for DRAWING ATTENTION, our third segment of the @drawingonloveandjustice sketchbook collective.

More about @drawingonloveandjustice:
In the time of a rampant pandemic and racial injustice, how can we draw on our tools to bear witness to the world we are living in and draw on love and justice to imagine a different future?

Drawing on Love and Justice asks us to be observant critical thinkers reflecting not only what we see, but also to imagine seeing what we want to change. It is a call to draw from both observation and imagination.

As we enter a new year, this is a call to artists to draw on their creative tools to speak to injustice and make a commitment to draw on love and justice for positive change.
