The launch of “Speaking with Precision”, our inaugural Artaxis + The Color Network Curatorial Fellowship exhibition curated by Gerald A. Brown is right around the corner! This virtual exhibition will launch at 12pm EST on June 18th Artaxis.org/Precision. Please join us for the opening reception on the same day at 6:30 EST.
Speaking with Precision is a cross-generational exploration of ceramic abstraction as an empowering framework for artists of color. Showcasing the work of Syd Carpenter, Aisha Chantal Bryant, Leonor Marion-Landais, Donte J. Moore, and Daniel Alejandro Trejo, this exhibition transcends the limitations of literalness and asks, “How can the aesthetic of abstraction disrupt the politics of normativity and become a vehicle for artists of color to be extremely precise?"
A special thank you goes out to this year’s Curatorial Fellowship Mentor, Angelik Viscarrondo-Laboy for helping Gerald realize this amazing exhibition!
