Protest and Power, the fifth exhibition presented by MassArt x SoWa, explores the historic civil rights movement alongside the contemporary Black Lives Matter movement. Curated by Keith M. Francis, a 2018 alumnus of MassArt’s MFA: Fine Arts Low-Residency program, the show addresses the violence and racism embedded in the economic, political, and social fabric of the United States. As Francis remarks in his curator’s statement, “The concurrent pandemics of COVID-19 and violence against people of color call upon us to seize this moment, to engage issues of race and inequity with renewed energy and a vision for an equitable and enlightened future.”
Featured artists include Cedric “Vise1” Douglas, Keith M. Francis, Zaire Love, Jon Krippahne, and Carl E. Moore. The exhibition closes on Sunday, October 24 at 5pm (EST) with a special event: an in-person spoken word performance at the Boston gallery by Tennessee-based artist Zaire Love. Viewers can also join the performance that evening live on Instagram.
The MassArt x SoWa graduate gallery launched in April 2021 with a mission to exhibit high-quality work in a broad range of media from emerging and established artists. It features thesis work by the college’s MFA students as well as premier work from its graduate design and art education programs. The gallery also supports MassArt student, faculty, and alumni curatorial projects, juried graduate alumni exhibitions, and collaborative exhibitions with the college’s community partners.
