The first part of a two-part exhibition, crossed kalunga by the stars & other acts of resistance curated by guest curator Tosha Grantham, is now open to the public.
crossed kalunga by the stars & other acts of resistance features work by seven contemporary artists who evidence transformative and contested circumstances in their production. Art by José Bedia, Athlone Clarke, André Leon Gray, Esmerelda Mila, Rex Miller, Marielle Plaisir, and Renée Stout navigates awareness and adversity in conversation with nature and memory. Each shares a distinctive perspective on how art can speak provocative truths amidst a sea of mutable facts. In her/his own way, each artist gathers and weaves real and imagined histories — past and recent — to embed their art with layers of creative, ancestral, and spiritual DNA to elucidate possible features in formation.
crossed kalunga by the stars will be on view in the Adams and Woodsen galleries through March 11, 2022. The second part of the exhibition, & other acts of resistance, will be on view in the Black/Sanderson gallery from September 27, 2021 to February 25, 2022.
