This semester’s lineup of exhibitions are about how we commune to meet ourselves and others at the intersections of our lives.

‘Ethereal: Boundless Black Femininity’ gallery shares divine femininity with all genders
Upcoming at the Gallery
Ethereal: Boundless Black Femininity
March 21 - April 10
The photography showcased in this exhibit is an open reclamation of the multiple ways the divine feminine shows up in Black people regardless of gender presentation. It is an acknowledgment of the complex embodiment of femininity in Black men, women, femmes, and gender-expansive people. By resisting normative values, this exhibit seeks to challenge what we think we know about the Black feminine.
Ethereal: Boundless Black Femininity is an African American Cultural Center exhibit in partnership with the NC State Women's Center and Multicultural Student Affairs. Visit to embrace the artful softness, luxury, veracity, fluidity and mysticism of our own NC State community.
