Main Campus, Tennessee State University

TSU will host two visiting artists for a joint exhibition. Carl Pope's work has been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art (Biennial), and MoMA in New York City. His work explores the use of text and language as it informs identity, specifically the black identity.

His project, "The Bad Air Smelled of Roses" is shown as an introduction to his work as he partners with TSU's art galleries and Nashville artists on a collaborative print project (Spring 2010).

Up next: Aisha Cousins' Diva Dutch project, November 5.
