15-11-2018 12:00:00 15-11-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Race, Myth, Art, and Justice Exhibition | Opening Reception On Thursday, November 15th, you're invited to the opening of Race, Myth, Art, and Justice! The exhibition explores intersecting ideas of race, myth, art, and justice through the lens and unique interpretations of twelve inter-generational photographers. Via innovative contemporary art practices, the photographers engage with the premise of “race” as a social construct rooted in myth, while simultaneously interrogating its profound implications and indignities on our 21st-century lives. With roots in the United States and throughout Africa and the Caribbean—including Guyana, Jamaica, Nevis, Panama, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, and Sierra Leone—the photographers draw from an African Diasporic worldview steeped in their personal experiences as well as larger geographical political histories. Collectively, their images offer a poignant and provocative portrait of the ways the mythology of race and the pursuit of justice continue to permeate the global African experience. Featured Artists: Kwesi Abbensetts, Faisal Abdu’Allah, Terry Boddie, Jonathan Gardenhire, John E. Dowell, Jr. Adama Delphine Fawundu, Deborah Jack, Zoraida Lopez-Diago, Radcliffe Roye, Stan Squirewell, Ming Smith, Deborah Willis. Curators: Grace Aneiza Ali and C. Daniel Dawson Project Coordinator: Marta Moreno Vega, President of the Creative Justice Initiative The opening reception will debut the exhibition and will feature remarks by our new Executive Director, curators, artists, and a festive reception.
