Her Art Will Be Cannibal

Jan. 16 through Mar. 7, 2018

Curator: Alicia Grullón

Main Gallery

Her Art Will Be Cannibal, curated by interdisciplinary artist Alicia Grullón, is inspired by the work of the Martinique poet Suzanne Césaire and her book “The Great Camouflage: Writings of Dissent (1941-44).” Artworks in this exhibition break down patriarchy, class, and racial paradigms in contemporary contexts, re-stating and affirming the discourse of art from the view of women. Moving through photography, video, text, performance and drawing, their work serves as a manifesto, uncompromising in beliefs and identities. The exhibit highlights a narrative of humanness seldom given visibility, and allows room for the artists’ visions to take over.

Participating Artists:Damali Abrams, Francheska Alcántara, Chloë Bass, Ayana Evans, Jessica Lagunas, Shellyne Rodriguez and Misra Walker. Engaging public programs will include four performances and one panel discussion with participating artists.
