Grades 6-12 | Museum of Fine Arts Boston presents Black Artists and Activism: Lauren Halsey & Helina Metaferia
Explore the work of two artists who hope to influence and imagine new futures for their communities and beyond. Lauren Halsey remixes signs and symbols inspired by her South Central Los Angeles neighborhood and juxtaposes them with works from the MFA’s collection of Ancient Egyptian and Nubian art. Halsey sees her artworks as blueprints to imagine new futures, both local and global, that celebrate and protect Black life. Centering women of color as protagonists, Helina Metaferia mines oral histories and institutional archives of Black liberation ephemera to point toward ways in which activists—especially women of color—can profoundly influence the future, and always have.
