About Body | About Face Virtual Artist Talks Part I
Vilified, exotified, and commodified, for centuries black bodies have been treated as screens, a place to project white desires with little regard for their own experience.  This Fall, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve is pleased to host About Body | About Face, a small-group, figurative exhibition which examines the representation of African American bodies in art and culture. Featuring 7 regional creators, the show includes paintings, mixed media installations, photography, mosaics, and textiles, creating a compelling display which is both a meditation and celebration of black identity.

To accompany About Body | About Face, the Archives will host 2 virtual artist talks. Please join artists Davon Brantley, Jacques P. Jackson, and Yvonne Palkowitsh on Wednesday December 2, and Lawrence Baker, Amanda D. King, and Tony Williams on Wednesday, December 9, as they discuss issues of identity and representation, share current work, and provide unique insights into their practice.

The About Body | About Face Virtual Artist Talks will last approximately 1 hour, followed by an audience Q & A. The programs are free and open to the public on the Zoom meeting platform. Read more about the exhibition and artists, visit artistsarchives.org
