Artist: Alexis Eke
Location: Upper level Taste MRKT
Composed of contemporary illustrations of Black women, this installation highlights Black female representation in formal art spaces.
“Where Are We Now?” will ask audiences to question how Black women are represented in the art world. Most of the time in formal art spaces, Black women are brought in as moving parts, rarely entering these fields as a permanent feature. Large displays of Black art are important, as they allow Black youth to believe there is a future for them in this industry. With a vibrant installation filled with contemporary imagery, audiences will experience a celebration of Black women.
Extended Project Details: This project will be available for extended viewing during regular Scarborough Town Centre hours until October 13th.
