You are invited to experience Black History Month at Daniels Spectrum with a group art exhibition that explores past, present and future narratives of black consciousness in the African Diaspora through painting, photography, graphic arts, sculptures, audio and video works in the Hallway Galleries produced for Black History Month by Interim Curator Ashley McKenzie-Barnes. We’re excited to present the show Through Generations for the month of February, featuring five local contemporary artists: Ato Seitu, Ella Cooper, Georgia Fullerton, Komi Olaf, and Mark “Kurupt” Stoddart. It also includes a collaborative display by the ZimArt’s Rice Lake Gallery and Zimbuktu Sculptures – Public Art Consultants and a special installation brought to you by the Art Gallery of Ontario.
A Jean-Michel Basquiat interactive installation, brought to you by the Art Gallery of Ontario and Daniels Spectrum. One of the most acclaimed artists of our time, Basquiat was born in Brooklyn New York in 1960 to a Haitian father and mother of Puerto Rican descent.
