Broadway World: UTA Artist Space Presents 'Renaissance: Noir' Virtual Exhibition Curated By Myrtis Bedolla

June 13, 2020

TA Artist Space will present Renaissance: Noir, a virtual exhibition featuring paintings by 12 emerging Black artists, live on UTAArtistSpace.com from today, June 9 - July 3, 2020. Curated by Myrtis Bedolla, Baltimore-based owner of Galerie Myrtis, Renaissance: Noir investigates Blackness on the continuum of the historiographies of Black artists' narratives that assert, individually and collectively, their state of mind and state of being Black. The timeliness of the exhibition is particularly significant, as its launch comes amidst a heightened awareness of racial injustice against the Black community, with protests occurring around the world. The show marks UTA Artist Space's first full virtual exhibition.

 

The artists highlighted in Renaissance: Noir are Tawny Chatmon, Wesley Clark, Alfred Conteh, Larry Cook, Morel Doucet, Monica Ikegwu, Ronald Jackson, M. Scott Johnson, Delita Martin, Arvie Smith, Nelson Stevens, and Felandus Thames. Their work collectively captures the existence of "double consciousness," as coined by W.E.B. DuBois, where one is constantly combating the "isms" -racism, colorism, sexism, capitalism, colonialism, escapism, and criticism through the act of artistic activism. (READ MORE)
