The 5th Annual Art Of Transformation â€œSAY It Loudâ€ Series Re-Images Blackness In America
Thursday, 11/10/2016 – 11/10/2016 06:30 pm – 10:00 pm
675 Ali Baba Avenue,
Opa Locka, Florida 33054
Curated by Tumelo Mosaka, the AOT series is themed â€œSAY IT LOUD!â€ 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. â€œSAY IT LOUD!â€ 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.
