STEFFANI JEMISON in A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration

Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland
Oct 30, 2022 — Jan 29, 2023

A Movement in Every Direction: Legacies of the Great Migration explores the profound impact of the Great Migration on the social and cultural life of the United States from historical and personal perspectives. Co-organized with the Baltimore Museum of Art, the exhibition features newly commissioned works by 12 acclaimed Black artists across a variety of media. The Great Migration (1915-1970) saw more than six million Black Americans leave the South for cities across the United States. Informed by research, explorations, and conversations, the artists’ works explore themes of perseverance, self-determination, and self-reliance, along with the impacts this historical phenomenon continues to have today.

The exhibition is co-organized by the Mississippi Museum of Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art and will travel to The Brooklyn Museum in 2023
