Artists’ Talk Back with Ernest Shaw
October 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Developed by Motor House Senior Artist in Residence, Ernest Shaw, this Artists’ Talk Back interrupts the traditional format of the ‘Artists Talk,’ creating space to engage the lived experience of fellow creative producers, while addressing the themes presented in his solo exhibition, Testify!: A Life’s Time of Emerging Blackness.
This event invites a group of artists and peers selected by Shaw, and audience members, to have critical discussions about the artists’ visual exploration of blackness, manhood and masculinity, the criminalization of young black male bodies, and the survivorship of black women and womanhood.
