Otieno’s Dream

An Exhibition by Justice 4 Tyranny  |  June 1 – Sep 30

Starting out his professional career as black and white street photographer, he evolved into a refined fine artist; heavily inspired by classical baroque painting, fashion photography, and directors like David Lynch. His visual reach broadened when he revealed more of himself and a transmogrified version of his work, exposing his devolution to the African art and agendas of Dubois, Hughes, Toomer, and Garvey. The new work cemented him at the top of his art circuit.

Protection Shields 2.0

An Exhibition by Gale Madyun  |  Sept 7 – Oct 26

Gale Madyun knows that the fragile nature of the human spirit puts us at risk of failing to remember our divinity. Our most magnificent aspects have been ridiculed, exploited, torn to pieces and then discarded. Gale Madyun has searched for those sacred discards, sweet-talked them back into their fullness, and has brought our pieces together in service of healing.
