Curated by Tya Anthony and featuring works by Adderly Grant-Lord, Jazz Holmes, Shaunie Berry, Yaz Atmore, and Tya Anthony. Through the power of multi-generational collaboration, we pay homage to the women that paved the way for our journey and look towards the future with a spirit of creativity, possibility, and empowerment. We explore the idea of living an authentic life and forging our own paths. Our art reflects a deeper connection to our identity as Black women and the rich complexity of our experiences. We draw on emotion and abstraction to bring the Black experience in the 21st century to life, envisioning new narratives that are as dynamic and diverse as the people themselves. In the wake of a global pandemic, we find strength and hope in the power of art to inspire and unite us all.
