Other Side of the Game: An Exhibition

October 19, 2017 – November 18, 2017 – 1st floor | Opening Reception on October 19, 2017 | 7:00pm

What is required when you love someone who is targeted and criminalized by the state?

Written by Amanda Parris, the theatre play OTHER SIDE OF THE GAME explores this question by centering the stories of those who are too often relegated to the supporting role of a male-dominated narrative.

This exhibition features creative work that centers women too often silenced and marginalized. Each piece has been selected because of its relation to a theme in the play OTHER SIDE of the GAME by Amanda Parris. It invites viewers to recognize the self-determination of women who love on their own terms.

Other Side of the Game: An Exhibition features works from:
Amanda Anoize, Trevlyn Kennedy, Setti Kidane, Dainesha Nugent-Palanche, Zehna Odwar, Kalmplex, Benny Bing, and more.

Curated by: Amanda Parris

Supported by:
The Ride or Die Project, Artscape Daniels Spectrum and the Black Speculative Arts Movement
