SERIES 10: BLACK ART RISING

  • Dawn Okoro

    Dawn Okoro is a Nigerian American artist who lives and works in Austin, Texas. Her work is informed by the composition techniques used in fashion photography. Using oil, acrylic, and pencil, she incorporates photography, collage, and ideas from punk and popular culture. Her artwork embodies space, movement, pattern, design, texture, and color; as well as lived experiences and self-reflexivity. Self-reflexivity is a process by which she critically examines the experiences (exterior and interior) that shape her everyday life and those that surround her.

  • Adler Guerrier

    Adler Guerrier is a Haitian-American multimedia artist who lives and works in Miami, Florida. Guerrier roams the streets of Miami, absorbing urban impressions before producing mixed media drawings, photographs, and videos conveying the collective experience of cities. Guerrier improvises between form and function to nimbly subvert space and time in constructions of race, ethnicity, class, and culture. He calls upon the democratizing nature of collage and the authority of formal composition to designate to art history an axis of contemporary identity critique.

  • Tajh Rust

    Tajh Rust is a visual artist based in New York and New Haven. Through figuration and abstraction, he explores the relationships between black identity and space. Rust collaborates with his subjects to determine how they are represented and employs film and literary references to draw connections between portraiture, language, and modes of representation.  While also taking inspiration from his own travels and imagination, Rust manipulates the boundary between realism and surrealism.
