Drawing from scholar Stuart Hall’s notion of cultural identity as both a state of "becoming" and "being," the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and Toronto collector Kenneth Montague present Becoming: Photographs from the Wedge Collection, a collaboration pulling together a collection of over 100 works from artists of African descent within the last century. The show is on view at the Nasher Museum through January 8th, 2012. Featuring the works of such noted artists as Dawoud Bey, Malick Sidibé, Hank Willis Thomas, and Mickalene Thomas the exhibition presents over 60 artists throughout the African Diaspora.
