Date: April 22 - July 22, 2021
Culminating the work of our Curator-In-Residence stylo starr, Nia Centre for the Arts and McMaster Museum of Art present a virtual exhibition opening on April 22 – May 1. the cut, the tear & the remix: contemporary collage and Black futures bring together the work of eight contemporary artists deeply engaged in the excavation of a future informed by their individual ancestral connections to the African and Caribbean diaspora and their varied interpretations of collage.
This online exhibition presents “cut & paste” techniques in not only its traditional tactile paper and photomontage iterations, but also in uncharacteristic expressions of new media including video, text and design. The digital presentation of the remix, as a result of current global circumstances, is in and of itself an envisioning of the future of Black spatial and temporal experiences marking an invitation to participate in this new imagining.
Featuring works by: Emkay Adjei-Manu, Anna Binta Diallo, FEZA, Sonya Mwambu, Kofi Oduro, SPATIAL-ESK, Ghislan Timm, Yung Yemi
