To Dream Avant-Garde

Curated by Alteronce Gumby

Sept. 28 – Nov. 4, at Hammond Harkins Galleries in Columbus, OH

To dream avant-garde is to dream radically, without limitations of the mind, to imagine what has not been seen and dwell in the presence of nouveau. As an acknowledgment to those innovators, whom were also dreamers of an American identity and country to call their own, the artists in this exhibition display a survey of ideas, intention and materials that invoke the legacy and culture of Harlem. In reflection of the Harlem Renaissance contemporary artists Derek Fordjour, Aaron Fowler, Hugh Hayden, Lucia Heirro, Leslie Jimenez, Eric Mack, Faith Ringgold, Tschabalala Self, Tariku Shiferaw, and Dave Shrobe will present works engaging with the Theme to dream avant-garde.
