Luminós/C/ity.Ordinary Joy: From the Pigozzi Contemporary African Art Collection, Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
from 10/21/14 to 01/08/15
"We are pleased to announce that the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery’s inaugural exhibition will comprise selections from the Jean Pigozzi Collection of Contemporary African Art (CAAC). David Adjaye, the renowned British-Ghanaian architect and the designer of the Cooper Gallery and the Hutchins Center façade, also serves as co-curator of this first exhibit, along with Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt. Adjaye heads a curatorial team that offers a unique dialogue between art and space that we think will set the tone for exhibitions to come. Luminós/City.Ordinary Joy will feature 69 works by 21 artists. It illuminates the everyday, ordinary, and ubiquitous world of the city characteristic of so many of the works in Pigozzi’s collection, evoking a sense of place and facilitating a dialogue between body, home, transit, and dynamic urban dwellings. The models, sculptures, photographs, paintings, and videographies of vital city life will convey a vibrant urgency to the Gallery’s visitors."

Opening in fall 2014, the newly established Ethelbert Cooper Gallery is one of eight flagships of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University. It will feature both contemporary and historical exhibitions and installations of African and African American art of a global diaspora. The innovative and distinctively designed gallery exhibit spaces will house shows organized by curators, faculty, artists, students, and distinguished guests. The gallery will host a wide range of dynamic workshops, artist talks, symposia, lectures and performances to engage audiences with diverse art archives and cultural traditions from all over the world.
