Freedom? is a collaborative curatorial project led by members of UA’s Black Faculty and Staff Association. The group envisioned "Freedom" as a broad theme designed to examine the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art through an interdisciplinary lens. From this vantage, the exhibition gathers together artworks that reflect on the tragedies of slavery, celebrate the victories of Civil Rights, and herald the creativity of black artists. Nevertheless, by positing "Freedom" as a question, the exhibition insists on the tenuous and unfinished struggle for social justice in the United States.
