The 38-member collective of artists that withdrew from the Whitney Biennial two weeks ago, known as the Yams Collective or HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?, is screening its pulled contribution along with other material in an alternative Brooklyn space tonight and tomorrow. The event, which Yams Collective first announced when they recused themselves from the Biennial, will begin 8pm both days at FREECANDY, located in the Clinton Hill neighborhood at 905 Atlantic Avenue.
A member of the collective spoke to Hyperallergic regarding the choice of the venue and area. “It’s basically within the neighborhood, within the community, putting the art back to where we come from. In the institution it’s a very different audience; since they’ve alienated this population we’re putting it back here,” they said.
FREECANDY is a co-working space by day and a gallery and exhibition space by night, according to organizers, and it is a black-owned business.
