Residency: Durham Black Artists' Collective
April 27, 2017 - June 18, 2017
Artist Talk: May 7, 1-3pm
Reception: June 2, 7-9pm
Artists-in-residence, Georgia Fullerton and Robert Small of the Durham Black Artists Collective, are painters motivated by a desire to provide a significant social and political commentary on the African-Canadian experience. During their residency, the DBAC will be undertaking an entirely new body of work. Their explorations will traverse an intimacy of emotion through the lens of gender that expands on the narrative of the African-Canadian. Their individual, social and political viewpoints will focus their artistic mission, and their search to answer the question, how art can affect change?
Fullerton and Small have entered this residency with blank canvasses. They plan to emerge with work that explores the depths of the African-Canadian identity and reflect the adventure of life in a Black body.
This is The Beginning… where art, experience, emotion, and ethnicity collide to create an artistic exploration of existence.
