Opening Ceremony • August 30th at 6pm
Conversation w/ contemporary artist Adrian Walker (@aoctaviusw)
WE MATTER — a solo exhibition
Adrian Walker’s new body of work explores Black American beauty traditions among Black men. The intimacy that Walker depicts in each photograph erases the possibility of threat often assigned to black men, and instead pushes the viewer to see the power of kinship within the Black community. We Matter, is a visual and sonic experience in which Walker seeks to expand notions of blackness by challenging the American socialization of black men.
