Celebrate & amplify the work of Black female artists at this free art exhibit in Industry City, Brooklyn!
Presented by LatchKey Gallery and curated by Tamecca Seril, “The Last Supper” showcases the incredible work of 12 Black female artists across NYC.
As you may guess, the title references the famed biblical event, but instead suggests a new kind of gathering. The exhibit aims “to fill the dearth of Black female voices at the contemporary, metaphoric table…[building] a new ‘table’ that values, elevates, and honors the voices of Black Women,” they explain in a press release.
The works span across artistic mediums, and explore themes of representation, cultural histories, experiences, and perceptions. Artists featured include: Ariel Dannielle, Ashante Kindle, Dana Robinson, Dominque Duroseau, Jennifer Mack-Watkins, Josie Love Roebuck, and more.
“Last Supper posits the creative union of Black Women Artists births both protective spaces of shelter and manumission from institutional norms and constraints ultimately producing a formidable balm and an expansive vernacular of disruptive art,” says curator Tamecca Seril.
Check it out at Industry City in Brooklyn (Building Five, Second Floor) every weekend through March 20, 2021 from 12-6 p.m., and on weekdays by appointment only!
Industry City is also the perfect place to spend a day trip — while viewing the exhibit, you can also stop by Japan Village, try the largest outdoor dining set-up in NYC, and support local creators by shopping in the Makers Guild.
