What a whirlwind! Last week at the MoCADA Brown Paper Zine and Small Press Fair was so amazing; we met so many talented artists and new friends of #Blkgrlswurld.
As the Spring continues we have some books and prints coming up in groups shows.
#BlackArtMatters at the Carnegie Center for Art and History : February 3 – April 8, 2017
Exhibit Opening Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. | Curator, Daniel Pfalzgraf
“This is an exhibit born out of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, created to provide space for people to be seen and heard. This exhibition is about sharing histories and celebrate lives, and to encourage understanding and respect among neighbors. In this moment in history, the Carnegie Center for Art & History felt a sense of urgency to share our space to highlight the work and vision of both local and national African American artists to bring national conversations to our space and community.” Press
Shifting: African American Women Artists and the Power of Their Gaze at The David C. Driskell Center at the University of Maryland, College Park
Thursday, March 2 – Friday, May 19, 2017 | featuring work by Christina Long, Faith Ringgold, Alison Saar, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Deb Willis and many others 😀
Curators: Professor Curlee R. Holton, the David C. Driskell Center’s Executive Director, serves as the primary curator. He is assisted by the Driskell Center’s Deputy Director, Dorit Yaron.
“Shifting explores how African American female artists turn their gaze on themselves and on other women. Not attempting to provide one answer, this exhibition serves as a platform for creating a dialogue around the questions: Whose gaze is it? Is the male gaze also the female gaze? Are women looking at themselves through the male gaze? “
