Exhibition files include detailed records of the TransAfrican Art Invitational Exhibition, curated by Donaldson in 1997 at the Orlando Museum of Art, and records of the solo and group exhibition of Donaldson's artwork from the late 1960s to 2000.
This series is arranged as 2 subseries.

  • 9.2: Other Exhibitions, circa 1966-2000
6.1: TransAfrican Art Invitational Exhibition (1997-1998), 1980s-1998
Records of the TransAfrican Art Invitational Exhibition, curated by Donaldson at the Orlando Museum of Art in 1997, include biographical information about the participating artists, general records, and draft materials for the exhibition catalog. Information about the participating artists may include photographs and slides of the artists and their artworks, resumes, artist statements, exhibition publications, and press clippings. General records primarily include correspondence with the Orlando Museum of Art and others, planning documents, checklists, agreements, and a few photographs. Materials for the exhibition catalog include draft essays by several art historians, photographs of exhibited works, artist bios, and catalog proposals. Researchers should note that this exhibition coincides with Donaldson's guest editorship of a TransAfrican themed issue of the International Review of African American Art. Documentation about this publication (in subseries 10.5), may overlap with the documentation for the TransAfrican Art Invitational Exhibition catalog, which was never published.
