How Did You Get This?: The Spaces We Inhabit

Works by Zalika Azim, Elliott Jerome Brown, Jr., Colette Veasey-Cullors, Melvin Harper, Daonne Huff, Anders Jones and Deborah Willis, from March 14 through April 18, 2020. Organized by Ivy N. Jones and Damien Davis the exhibition features photographs, ephemera, and a performance that utilizes the gallery’s location in a 19th century townhouse as the point of departure for unpacking assumptions and expectations about spaces inhabited and controlled by the black body. How Did You Get This?:The Spaces We Inhabit relates to access to architectural space, the body as space, landscape as space and movement and performance as a means of experiencing and navigating through space.

On Saturday, March 14 a reception for the artists will be held from 6 - 9 pm, with a performance by Daonne Huff at 8:15 pm.
