About the Event
Artists of this exhibit: Ugo Agoruah, Thom Bess, Montez Brenard, Williams Riggs Sabb, and Ron Smith were selected by Co-Curators, Markeidric the Great and Ray Lewis.
Purposefully chosen, these creators zoom in on the origin of Africa’s migration expansion. They push past the narrative of slave ships and greedy overlords to extend this spotlight onto the Out of Africa Theory. This theory is greater than just being “black” or “African-American;” instead, these artists create original work to zoom in on overshadowed voyages of early Aboriginals.
This blend of emerging & mid-career artists use colors, patterns, textures, and mediums to suggest that the Out of Africa Theory does not fit present lineage into a one size fits all tale; and wants its audience to question, could there be more...more that deserves to be questioned? And quite possibly, more that may have already happened?
