Dread Scott invited me to be a part of this exhibition at the Harlem Stage on Monday to celebrate the publishing of Bob Avakian’s new book. Dread says “times like these demand a joyous celebration of the possibility of a radically different future.” and I agree.
The show includes artwork by: Derrick Adams, Wafaa Bilal, Richard Duardo, Emory Douglas, Skylar Fein, Kyle Goen, Guerrilla Girls BroadBand, Steve Lambert, Wangechi Mutu, Dread Scott, SEN ONE UZN and Hank Willis Thomas.
“These artist span generations, work in different media, employ different conceptual and aesthetic strategies, come from different countries and show everywhere from major museums to street corners. The exhibit includes photography, screen prints, video and painting. Some of the works starkly confront a world scarred by war and oppression. Other works encourage viewers to imagine how it could be radically different.” —Dread Scott
Monday, 7pm Harlem Stage.
