Event Details

This exhibition connects seven artists (Oluseye Ogunlesi, Karice Mitchell, Fegor Obuwoma, Clancy Ngolah, Odera Igbokwe, Michèle Bygodt, and Nura Ali) whose works in this exhibit are connected through a desire to make visible the specificities of language that emerge as a result of lived experiences in the diasporic world. The representation of Blackness is understood in this exhibition as a means of communication interpreted through storytelling and portraiture. These stories unfold and interweave with one another through film, photography, and printmaking amongst other media, deepening a consideration of how community is visualized with agency. Bringing together themes of community, language, racial violence, voyeurism, spirituality, Black agency, erasure, and cultural reconnection, Concealed Cultures is meant to be expansive.

Celebrate this exhibit at our opening reception on September 17 where some of the artists will be in conversation with the exhibition curators.
