Summer Exhibition Series and Culture Keepers Youth Conference

July 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm UTC+0

Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center (PGAAMCC) is proud to announce our summer exhibitions. PGAAMCC presents a versatile, multi-generational group of artists in the exhibitions If I knew then what I know now curated by Yaya Bey and Mothership to the Ancestral Plane curated by our Education Curator, Synatra Smith, Ph.D. Join us on Friday, June 1st 6-9pm for the opening of this exciting exhibition series.

f I knew then what I know now is an exhibition about Black childhood. Curator, Yaya Bey introduces and questions how the nuance of digital media might have impacted the childhood, connection to Black culture, and the community to both the featured artists and our patrons. Bey presents works that combine installations, polaroids, and an open dialogue about re-imagining Black childhood. With access to cyber-communities and places of cultural affinity, Bey challenges our audience and asks if we are now more informed to navigate the intersections of Blackness? What does this collective consciousness mean for future generations? Artists include: Imar Hutchins, Josef Isaiah K., Things by Demetria, and Quinci Baker.

 Mothership to the Ancestral Plane is an afro-futurist youth exhibition featuring art works created by students in PGAAMCC’s teen after-school program, Culture Keepers.  After seven months of research and production, the students’ work demonstrates an afro-futuristic reality. These imaginings might be actualized as these young artists mature into adulthood, and technology continues to advance. The pieces were developed concurrently with the release of the Marvel film Black Panther, which provided an updated launching point from which the students could understand and execute the aesthetic.
