“How We See You”

The perception of black women through the art of black men.  
January 25th to March 3rd, 2017.

The bulk of the exhibit presents the work of photographer Olivier Kpognon and painting and sculpture by Iyaba Ibo Mandingo. The juxtaposition of styles and media create a stimulating counter point between  fine vivid photography and the abstracted figurative paintings and sculpture.  Also featured is Ajani Housen making his City Lights debut with a photograph that exquisitely expresses the intention of the exhibit.
