Greetings Dieselfunkateers! BLACK METROPOLIS RETURNS! It’s looks like its gonna be one of those days. Back in 2016 I had the privilege of presenting a career retrospective of my work at Gallatin Galleries curated by Keith Miller. This show has formed one of the pillars of my present efforts, which is to SHOW THE WORLD MY WORK!
Black Metropolis: 30 Years of Afrofuturism, Comics, Music, Animation, Decapitated Chickens, Heroes, Villains, and Negroes.
The Hammonds House Museum is very clear:
Our mission, “to preserve, exhibit, interpret and increase public awareness about the contributions that visual artists of African descent have made to world culture” is the underpinning of the of the institution’s ongoing work.
Presently, the Legendary Carrie Mae Weems is exhibiting with as well as amazing artists such as Felton Eaddy. Also please note: Hammonds House is presently celebrating their 30th year anniversary. BLACK METROPOLIS will be the GRAND FINALE for this Celebration taking place during the final quarter of the year. More NEWS to Come!
