Black Detroit 21
What role will African Americans, as a majority population, play in Detroit’s ongoing development? This is one of the questions considered at “Black Detroit 21” curated by Odie Rynell Cash. The art exhibit will also address questions of identity, sexuality, protest and transition in the 21st century.
The above image is Jasmine Murrell’s “Moon Children Everywhere.” Murrell uses natural elements to express transition within the Black community. In this piece, she uses avocado peels. Works by Maurice Greenia, Jr., NNII, Fatima Sow and Atiba Seitu will also be shown. All artists have been influenced by Detroit’s African American community.
The show will run from Jan. 11 to March 22 at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design space Work at 3663 Woodward Ave., Detroit, 48201. For gallery hours and additional information, call 313.593.0940.
