Spring 2022 Exhibit
Richter Library, Room 118

In Our Glory /A Different Image

curated by Nhadya Lawes

An extension of my project as a 2019-20 Adobe Library Research Scholar, “A Different Image, Another Sound: Resistant Rhetoric and Black Identity” (inspired by Dudley Randall’s poem “A Different Image”), this show highlights select UM photographers in visual conversation with my research, the poem, and bell hooks’ essay, “In Our Glory: Photography and Black Life” in the book Art On My Mind.

Featuring the work of Nailah Anderson, Jay DeGrace, and Jasmine Page, In Our Glory / A Different Image celebrates photography as a powerful instrument of visual rhetoric for the “construction of an oppositional black aesthetic”* and recognizes image making as a radical creative act.

About Creative Studio exhibits

The Creative Studio gallery at Richter displays the work of University of Miami students who have used the services provided in the lab to create a visual story. The images selected are displayed here as well as in the lab’s physical space and are changed every semester. We try to showcase a variety of different ideas from students across departments.

If you’ve created a media project using any of the studio’s resources, please share it with us! We’d love to put it in the gallery and show off your work. Pitch your exhibit to us by filling out this online form or email inquiries to creativestudio@miami.edu
