Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium

18th & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium, is an exhibition that recount the 80-year history (1925-2005) of the Olympic Auditorium, the home for visceral entertainment in Los Angeles and a historic venue that shaped Los Angeles’ past and influenced its future. From the dangerous combat of boxing to the dramatic theatricality of wrestling, roller derby, and music, the gritty punch palace at the corner of 18th Street and Grand Avenue distilled the beauty and brutality of a divided city.

Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show
December 17, 2022 – February 18, 2023
In-Person opening reception: Saturday, December 17, 3 – 6 PM
Workshop by “Dolls Of Hope” with Dr. Cynthia Davis 3 – 5 pm (RSVP required for workshop participation, click the link below) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/42nd-annual-black-doll-show-opening-reception-tickets-471981247617
The William Grant Still Arts Center is proud to announce the longest running annual exhibition in Los Angeles, “Fun and Games – The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show”. Our first in person exhibition after two years online, this exhibition is an exploration of ancestral games and how play can help us think deeper and archive histories. This year we are looking for dolls, quilts, games and images/videos that fit our theme of historic games. Ethnographic studies in Africa allow us a peek into how games are part of social negotiations within various African cultures and Afro-Creole societies in the Americas. The investigation of games and social play indicates three main concepts in anthropological and archaeological theory: identity, agency, and power. In examining, through dolls, the history and culture of gaming in the Black diaspora, we seek to highlight the ways that the oppressed have established in-group power dynamics and identity through games and play.
This year, we include our new acquisitions, a collection of vintage and rare dolls donated by Sandra Campbell.

The House Was Too Small: Yoruba Sacred Arts from Africa and Beyond

The exhibition brings together over 100 sacred artworks including carved sculpture, vibrant beadwork, dazzling costumes, and other art forms from Nigeria and Benin and across the Yoruba diaspora of Brazil, Cuba, and the U.S. Together these objects trace continuities and innovations within the religious material culture of the Yoruba Atlantic, a cultural sphere profoundly affected by empire-building, colonialism, the violence of enslavement, international trade networks, and global immigration patterns.
