July 12, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - July 24, 2022 @ 8:00 pmFree
The Weusi Artist Collective: Black Joy and Resilience at Calabar Gallery is a group exhibition that spotlights the work of some of the members of the collaborative artists’ group founded during the Black Arts Movement (1965 – 1975). Curated by Atim Annette Oton, this exhibit features twenty-eight (28) works from eleven (11) of the collective’s current members: Deborah Singletary, Dindga McCannon, Ed Sherman, Jesse Henry, Jimmy James Greene, Ken Wright, MLJ Johnson, Otto Neals, Robert Daniels, Stanwyck Cromwell, and Taiwo Duvall. Each artist, in their unique artistic authenticity, visually expresses the Black form; explores deep stories of spirituality; highlights the interconnected culture shared between African and African Diaspora people; and creatively expands on the identity of Black culture.
