Transforming the Image of Black Men

Nearly 70 people attended PGAAMCC's 'Artist Talk' for the current exhibition 'Transforming Anew: Perspectives on Black Men' on Saturday, March 21.

Curator Jon West-Bey moderated the lively two-hour conversation about the images of black men and how recent events in Ferguson, Mo. and Florida inspired the provocative pieces featured in the exhibition by artists Chanel Compton, Nehemiah Dixon and David Ibata. Attendees eagerly engaged the artists with questions about interpretations of their work and how personal experiences in the United States and travels abroad may have influenced the artist's work.

See it for yourself!
