The Importance of Texture and Delicacy


The Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis (RAC) presents The Importance of Texture and Delicacy, an exploration of the concepts of emotional fragility and “Existence as Resistance” in Black Culture.

Through art and culture, we can physicalize the fragility and essence of Blackness. Each artist in this exhibition will use their own craft of sculpture, photography, archival work, or quilting to form a discussion around the body, the style, and the historical trauma/joy of the present and the past.
