Taylor Barnes: Pressure Exhibition Opening

September 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

Pressure seeks validation of the black female form by allowing it to exist as a mindset that rejects mind-less strength and claims self-preservation. The black female is no longer an object that will continue sustaining trauma. These nuanced gestures are a glimpse into the awakened future. Utilizing visual language as action, barnes allows her figures to challenge patterns of complacency and grab hold of power. These work’s collective mantra silence no longer protects us; we will not exist here removes the strain placed on black women to teach and exist in spaces where we are unwanted and places agency on how we position ourselves in this revolution.

This exhibition will remain on view through October 10. To allow for social distancing, appointments will be scheduled every 30 minutes, with a maximum of 10 guests at a time. By appointment only, masks are required at all times.
