Curated by Tumelo Mosaka, the AOT series is themed “SAY IT LOUD!” and will feature work by prominent contemporary artists Michael Paul Britto, Myra Greene, Joshua R. McFadden, Mario Pfeifer and Roberto Visani, and films by Bhawin Suchak & Ira McKinley and Stanley Nelson. “SAY IT LOUD!” is inspired by the James Brown song of the same name that addresses racial discrimination and calls for black empowerment. The call in this context is a rallying cry for all to mobilize against injustice and discrimination, as well as embrace black culture pride in the United States and African Diaspora. The artists explore a range of experiences that not only address the re-imagination and representation of blackness, but also examine the fear, trauma, and grief transpiring in black communities.

Exhibition Dates/Hours: November 10, 2016 to January 22, 2017, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Closed on holidays. Please email aileen@olcdc.org to arrange special visits (group tours, weekend or evening viewings). For more information, visit www.opalockaart.com
