Closing Reception | Time(is): An Exploration of Black Art in Madison
June 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
All are welcome to join the curator, exhibiting artists, and collaborators in celebrating the current exhibition – Time(is): an Exploration of Black Art in Madison before it closes on July 1. There will be artist talks, performances, and hands-on activities, open to all ages.
Time(is): An Exploration of Black Art in Madison highlights the works of four Black Madison-based artists who explore creating portraits through visual, performance, and conceptual art practices. These works capture moments in time as well as the passing of time and it’s intangibility.
Guest curator Sophia Abrams (Art History undergraduate) brings her expertise in local history archiving into the curation of this show by exploring the unique lens of these four artists along with their individual curated book lists that anchor their own narratives and creative practices. As these works exist boldly in this space the hope is to inspire conversation, celebration, and care in this time we share.
Time(is): An Exploration of Black Art in Madison is organized & curated by Sophia Abrams, with support from The Bubbler at Madison Public Library. Support for this exhibition is provided by Madison Public Library Foundation.
