Naima Lowe: Aren't They All Just Love Songs Anyway?
This event is in the past
Oct 4–Dec 11, Mondays–Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 am–5 pm, ended Dec 10, 2019
Jack Straw New Media Gallery Northeast Seattle (Seattle)
Multimedia artist Naima Lowe poses a question with the title of her new exhibition that I have often wondered about myself. Aren’t They All Just Love Songs Anyway? will feature new music, videos, sculptures, and drawings that explore the “risks and pleasures of being Black and valuing love.” Like in her past work, Lowe will draw on Black musical traditions, tracing the relationship between Black trauma and Black joy. Lowe will also use the color pink “as a cipher to reclaim Black humanity.” by Jas Keimig
