"WE ARE" 2.0 RESTORING THE CULTURE EXHIBITION __ INDIANAPOLIS, IN:

COMING SOON!  . . .  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!  

ENJOY AN EVENING OF INCREDIBLE ART & CULTURE !

INDIANA LANDMARK CENTER

FIRST FRIDAY,  JUNE 2ND, 2017   _From_   6:00 - 9:00pm.

“WE ARE” ​Artist Group, will be featured at “First Friday” Indiana Landmarks Center Rapp Family Gallery for their group show titled WE ARE 2.0 “Restoring Culture Exhibit”​. In addition to paintings, photography, sculpture and mixed media pieces, the show will include a group installation piece titled “Black Hollywood (the Good, the Bad and the Ugly)”​.

“Black Hollywood” The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly – Inspired by the ever-relevant lyrics of iconic bluesologist Gil Scott-Heron’s 1982 socio-political anthem “B-Movie” – this exhibit expresses the sojourn of the African American presence throughout American cinematographic history.  

Using chairs as their canvas, Indianapolis artists Tony Radford,  Bruce Armstrong,  Omar Rashan, Latoya Marlin, Gary Gee,  Sheridan and Steven Barnes,  Rebecca Williams,  Winterbourne Harrison-Jones and  Mijiza Holiday, each take their turn conveying a chapter in this unfolding tale of race, stereotypes, and the quest for sombodyness as told on the big screen.   Each of these pieces both celebrate and give voice to the brutal truth of this often untold and ignored saga. “Black Hollywood” is protest, history and art all wrapped into one – for overtimes fantasy is reality, and this places us in a situation that we can only look at like a "B" movie.

Exhibition On View through June, 29th.,  2017.   -------   FREE! and Open to the Public!
