CURRENTLY ON VIEW | Fahamu Pecou | August 26 – Oct 8, 2016



Fahamu Pecou
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance


Fahamu Pecou
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance

This solo exhibition features the work of Fahamu Pecou, an artist profoundly involved in exploring the state of Black existence – life and death – today. Violence in our society is endemic and pervasive. Undeniably Black bodies are disproportionately affected, through the shameful legacy of slavery and Jim Crow to current day shootings – the massacre at Charleston’s own Emanuel AME church in summer 2015 sadly just one tragic example of many.

FROM THE ARCHIVES | Sept. - Oct.. 2002



Simon Norfolk
Palimpsest Afghanistan


Clay Stewart

This exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001. In the aftermath, the sentiment expressed by many Americans was to bomb Afghanistan “back to the Stone Age”—a sentiment that could not have been more ironic, given the fact that the Soviets had already leveled much of the country’s infrastructure in the 1980’s. But before 9-11, most Americans had little understanding of the country of Afghanistan or its people. Since then, our country’s and the world’s attention has been focused on this forgotten corner of the globe.
