Internal Inferno” from fire to love. This exhibition symbolizes the effects systemic racism has on me, (an African American Woman), my family, and the entire black community. The constant oppression of our race has ignited a fire within me. A fire that I would argue exists in all of us. This fire symbolizes anger, rage and resentment. As well as love, perseverance and strength. Since the beginning of time we have always found a way to smile through adversity, and rise. Its with this power, of love, that we shall overcome today’s atrocities. By loving ourselves, then spreading the love to others and our communities. Embodying and creating the change we have been craving from a system that was build to keep us down. Internal Inferno is like stepping into the boiling pot that is America.
Opening Event Friday, September 4th. See event page for details and registration.
