Amerika. God Bless You If It’s Good To You is an exhibition of flat works and performance collaborations of twelve new and recent drawings and mixed media collages by Harlem-based artist Wardell Milan. Split into two parts, the exhibition explores the undergirding of contemporary America. The first portion of the exhibition, comprising new works on paper, explores the insidious normalcy of White supremacy in America. At the heart of the exhibition is the question: “What do terrorists do when they’re not terrorizing?” This inquiry pushes the artist’s assertion that racial violence is interwoven into the fabric of American life, and is an indiscriminate presence in public and private realms––from the Bayou to the Bronx. The second section of the show, which is housed in a site-specific chapel structure, designed by Billy Ray Morgan, explores the idea of “Safe Space” for communities that have been historically oppressed. This chapel space, modeled after the Rothko Chapel, will set the stage for a series of collaborative performances, choreographed by Milan and Zachary Tye Richardson, and unpack the need for safety interlinked through histories of violence; to be affirmed and celebrated. Within this chapel, these irrepressible bodies cannot be flattened but must be reckoned with.

Born in Flames: Feminist Futures is a constellation of imagined world-scapes projected by fourteen contemporary artists. Set within the space of an exhibition, the artwork presented is a projection of the artists’ larger visions about futurity. Each section of the show is a microcosmic speculation on what could have been, what is, or what is to come. These worlds are steeped in lessons of our complicated pasts, peppered with the ravages of oppression but also blooming joys. Their work critically examines current struggles for equity by exploring strategies for justice and equality through multifaceted futurisms. 

 

Born in Flames: Feminist Futures (Nacer En Llamas: Futuros Feministas) es una constelación de mundos-paisajes imaginados en las proyecciones de quince artistas contemporáneas. Enmarcado en el espacio de una exhibición, las obras son una proyección de las visiones ampliadas de lxs artistas acerca de la futuridad. Cada sección de la muestra es una especulación micro cósmica de lo que podría haber sido, lo que es, y lo que está por venir.  Estos mundos están impregnados de las lecciones de nuestros complicados pasados, salpicados de los estragos de la opresión, pero también de las alegrías florecientes. Sus obras examinan críticamente las luchas actuales por la equidad a través de la exploración de estrategias para la justicia y la equidad a través de futurismos multifacéticas.
