Multiple galleries will feature presentations that address vital themes of social justice and racial equality. Several highlights include: Anat Ebgi’s selection of video and digital collage works by Jibade-Khalil Huffman that examine the contradictory and intrinsic nature of racism in America; Jenkins Johnson Gallery’s ‘Stand Up, Speak Up, Speak Out’, featuring works by five African Diaspora artists, Lisa Corinne Davis, Rashaad Newsome, Blessing Ngobeni, Amani Lewis, and Raelis Vasquez, who explore international political and social issues of 2020; and ‘Gentle People’ at Jessica Silverman Gallery featuring Sadie Barnette, whose work draws on her family history, particularly the life of her father Rodney Barnette, a founding member of the Black Panther Party. Ebony G. Patterson, whose work addresses themes of global social and political injustices, will present her most recent works on paper at moniquemeloche.
