From a formative age, Black people are subjected to a range of cultural stereotypes and assumptions that cause them to question their identity and, more broadly, their place in society.
But Black people are not a monolith. Through the assembled works included in this show, EMBODIED shares the varied narratives of artists Basil Kincaid, Devin N. Morris, and DAngelo Lovell Williams. Included works utilize figurative photography and found-material quilting to highlight and discuss identity, history, and cultural issues as experienced by Black men. All three artists use color and pattern in a way that is at once seductive and reflective, the effect of which is bold and leaves an indelible impression on viewers.
EMBODIED is both an affirmation of the resilience of Black men and a call to fully consider their distinct stories.

presents the works of over forty contemporary artists working across drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography. While technically the exhibition is a "small works" show, featuring work 12 inches and under, the works included are certainly not defined by this limitation. On the contrary, many of the works feel expansive and ambitious, despite the physical constraints of being small.
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 20th
