Jonathan Carver Moore is excited to present Black as an Experience, Not as a Color, a group exhibition of six Black men from throughout the African Diaspora. Artists exhibiting at the gallery include Aplerh-Doku Borlabi, Christopher Adam Williams, Glenn Hardy Jr.,Odinakachi Okoroafor, Sesse Elangwe and Steelo.
This exhibition includes works that depict unique experiences to Black culture, as well as shows Black people in poised moments and statuesque poses asking the viewer to just take in what they see. From Borlabi’s use of coconut sheath portraying Black skin in his mixed media paintings to Hardy’s details of his experiences in getting his haircut in the barbershop, this group exhibition is one that lets people in on the dynamic lives of Black culture.
Black as Experience, Not as a Color is on view from April 20 – June 3.
