Join us for a discussion with Hear Me Now curator Jason Young and UMMA's Curator of African Art, Laura De Becker, who together will reflect on the connections between artistic and cultural traditions in 19th century West Central Africa and North America. Focusing on the so-called "face vessels" that were predominant in South Carolina pottery, the curators will explore the connections, legacy and persistence of African traditions in the American South—traditions that survived and adapted against great odds.

Hear Me Now is organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with support from the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Henry Luce Foundation.

Lead support for UMMA's presentation of the exhibition is provided by Michigan Engineering, the U-M Office of the Provost, the U-M Office of the President, the Americana Foundation, the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the U-M Inclusive History Project, and Michigan Humanities. Additional generous support is provided by Larry and Brenda Thompson and Melissa Kaish and Jonathan Dorfman.
