Magnetic Fields is a joint exhibition that features abstract works by twenty-one black women artists born between 1891 and 1981. 

In Magnetic Fields, artists dispel the notion that abstract art is made for visualizing personal experience. For instance, artworks such as Racism is Like Rain, Either it’s Raining or it’s Gathering Somewhere (1993) and Wrenching News (2008) by artists Mary Lovelace O’Neal and Maren Hassinger respectively are socio-politically-charged.
