NEWS & UPDATES @ GALLERY 102
WASHINGTON, DC -- Gallery 102 proudly presents the 2018 Summer Solo Series - three consecutive exhibitions highlighting contemporary artists Stephanie Mercedes, Matt Eich, and Alim Smith.
Through transforming weapons of violence into musical installations, Stephanie Mercedes subverts lethal materials into peaceful spaces of mourning that highlight the correlation between queer communities, trauma, and gun control. Matt Eich’s photographs document a community’s response and grief following the shooting of a young black man in Baptist Town, Mississippi. The series is part of his larger four-part series Invisible Yoke. Alim Smith paints iconic figures of both black culture and black history in rich and vibrant colors. His tone and palette is a surrealist, modernist aesthetic remixed with contemporary culture.
Exhibitions will include an array of programming and a reception. All events are free and open to the public. Dates for those events to be announced in separate press releases.
