Power, Myth, and Memory in Africana Art: Select Pieces from the CJ Williams Collection

On View: January 31–May 16
Panel Discussion: Sunday, February 23, 2-4pm
2pm Gallery Walk at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center
3pm Panel Discussion at the Alice & William Jenkins Gallery

It will include Collector CJ Williams, Curator Kristin Congdon, and Curatorial Advisor and Haitian artist Patrick Noze, and will be moderated by artist, educator and influencer Andrew Browne.

Power, Myth, and Memory in Africana Art is a partnership exhibition with other Orange County arts organizations that aim to commemorate the one hundred year anniversary of the 1920 Ocoee Massacre. The works displayed will demonstrate how artists of African descent have found power and resilience in a racially unjust world.

Charley Williams’ Winter Park-based collection spans the twentieth century and moves into the twenty-first. Because it focuses on African, Haitian, and African American art, it provides audiences with the opportunity to explore pan-African ideas that manifest themselves into the lives of three different places. Focusing on power, myth, and memory, we have that ability to see the importance of ritualistic ideas such as the “dream-soul,” animals as mediators, religious rituals, burial practices, and the importance of ancestors.

Included are works by Sister Gertrude Morgan, Clementine Hunter, David Butler, Ransom McCormick, Roi David Annisey, and Nellie Mae Rowe, as well as historic African masks, chairs, and fertility objects. These artists lift themselves up through faith, pride, and traditional practices thereby establishing diverse ways of transcending subjugation and finding strength. This artwork has extraordinary technical, historical, and symbolic weight that deserves the same respect given to traditional, western art.

The panel discussion will include Collector Charley Williams, Curator Kristin Congdon, and Curatorial Advisor and Haitian artist Patrick Noze.
