Multiplicity: The highly anticipated new exhibit coming to the Frist Art Museum


Sponsored by:


The Frist Art Museum will debut an intentional new exhibition exploring the black experience, coming this September 2023. The first major museum exhibition devoted to the subject, Multiplicity presents over 80 major collage and collage-informed works that reflect the breadth and complexity of Black identity. Featuring an intergenerational group of 52 living artists, Multiplicity explores the varying ways collage is employed and how the technique suggests diverse conceptual concerns such as cultural hybridity, notions of beauty, gender fluidity, and historical memory. By assembling pieces of paper, photographs, fabric, and salvaged or repurposed materials, these artists create unified compositions that express the endless possibilities of Black-constructed narratives despite our fragmented society.

Collaborators such as Tennessee State University, Fisk University, William Edmondson Park in Historic Edgehill Neighborhood, and Artville in Wedgewood-Houston are featuring reproductions of work by exhibited artists outside the museum walls.

To learn more about the upcoming Multiplicity: Blackness in Contemporary American Collage opening September 15 visit the Frist Art Museum.
