‘Cry of Victory and Short Walks to Freedom’ Exhibition Opening

On Oct. 18, “Cry of Victory and Short Walks to Freedom” curated by Modou Dieng will open at projects+gallery in the Central West End. Featuring fourteen artists of various disciplines, the exhibition celebrates creative gestures as small, yet impactful victories in the context of a dire political administration that is actively cutting funding for the arts. Together, each artist’s work provides a renewed sense of optimism and the potential for dialogue, progress and change. Furthermore, three pieces in the exhibition date from 1965 by Kwame Brathwaite bridging contemporary and past struggles. “Cry of Victory and Short Walks to Freedom” will feature artists Derrick Adams, Kwame Brathwaite, Bunny Burson, Jen Everett, Shabez Jamal, Rodolfo Marron III, Fabrice Monteiro, Esmaa Mohamoud, Alexis Peskine, Michele Pred, Aram Han Sifuentes, Xaviera Simmons, Hank Willis Thomas and Kennedy Yanko.
