In conversation with Angela Davis: Seize the Time, an exhibition at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers–New Brunswick, the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts presents Krista Franklin: Visual Poetry. This virtual exhibition showcases the visual work of artist and writer Krista Franklin, who said, “My work emerges at the intersection of poetics, popular culture, and the dynamic histories of the African Diaspora. The fantastic, the surreal, mythmaking, Black portraiture, and the collective conscious are conceptual preoccupations of my work.”
