40 Acres Deferred Artist Talk

January 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

GET TICKETS HERE!

Join PGAAMCC for an engaging artist talk with 40 Acres Deferred curator Maleke Glee, featuring artists: Tim Davis, Dr. Joan M.e. Gaither, Lionel Frazier, and Zsudayka Nzinga Terrell.

40 Acres Deferred highlights the ways in which, even with oppressive systems actively dismantling the rights outlined in our constitution, Black Americans have created spaces that affirm liberty, justice, and happiness. The presenting artists apply varied mediums and stylization in the interpretation of their individual and collective narratives. These narratives follow in the legacy of African American artists who have explored personal, regional, and national trends within the historical moments that shape American culture.

We will be discussing the featured artworks that explore Black American migratory patterns, the process of homemaking, and socio-economic autonomy. The contemporary pieces have embedded remnants of the past in subtle influence, narrative, or stylization. For African Americans, the 40 Acres Promise has been deferred, just as our governmental right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Yet, Black Americans thrive in their spaces; with each passing year, the power of ownership is communicated in the pursuit of legacy building, economic mobility, and cultural preservation. The artists featured in 40 Acres Deferred are paving a new legacy informed by their experience within landscape; their work is derived from the footsteps of their forebears and the environment that has shaped them.
