UPCOMING | ERWIN REDL | May 20 – July 9, 2016
The title is a play on the famous phrase “irrational exuberance” used by former Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan, in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute during the Dot-com bubble of the 1990s.
UPCOMING | Fahamu Pecou | August 26 – Oct 8, 2016
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual and 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 effected, 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.ONLINE EXHIBITION »
