Guest-Curated by: Shantrelle P. Lewis
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 16, 2012 | 4 -7pm

H(A)UNTED’s Public Installation at MoCADA was a series of 5 images on display along the museum’s building on South Oxford Place. Featuring the work of five Brooklyn-based Black male photographers, the series of photographs articulates/confronts/questions the historical criminalization and stereotyping of Black men in the U.S. – realities that each subject confronts, negotiates and defies on a daily basis, by his very existence.

CCCADI and MoCADA are committed to upholding a tradition of arts and activism. In the same manner in which Ida B. Wells-Barnett fought feverishly against lynchings and W.E.B. du Bois urged artists to use their talent for the sake of propaganda, our institutions encourage artists to use their voices to contribute to the empowerment of our communities. In response to Travyon Martin’s recent unwarranted murder and the consequences of being Black and male in America, a group of artists were invited to join us in raising critical awareness in the demand for justice and the fight to end the criminalization of Black men that is an apparent result of racial stereotyping.
