Each artist in this exhibition uses their practice to actively disrupt the status quo created by Western culture. The artists develop and engage in narratives that challenge European dominance on a global scale, inclusive but not exclusive to the United States. Wrestling with multiple historical references, the works collectively question notions of systemic erasure on an individual as well as ancestral scope. Each artist speaks to specific themes of resistance related to their personal journey within their cultural identity, using a fluid combination of ideals stemming from Futurism and/or Afrofuturism. Together, each artist offers the viewer a fresh perspective on a pertinent but timeless conversation about eternal resistance and how that force can inspire radical ways of redefining oneself.
opens First Friday, JUN 7 | 6 – 8 pm
