Current Exhibit

Upending the Narrative @ EXPO Chicago 2019

The two artists featured in Upending the Narrative work slowly and methodically -- almost ritualistically. They create detailed and sumptuous works of art redolent with content and mystery; these works demand to be studied. Equally important to the painstaking “making” is their studio practices exploring the current condition in their own African American communities. Each speaks about the real life versus media portrayal/stereotype of the African American family: grandfather, mother, brother, daughter and the normal if the invisible successful black community.

Barbara Earl Thomas: Caught in the Matrix

For her exhibition Caught in the MAtrix, Thomas chose the medium of Tyvek for the symbolic and practical properties of the building material. She describes the piece and the process as an homage to Jacob Lawrence who often referenced African American “builders” in his work. In this these works, you’ll see the bodies descending through space.
