Black Borders: Artists of Color, Reframing Culture

Black-Borders---Fort-Worth-Contemporary-Arts-1180x360

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is pleased to present, Black Borders: Artists of Color, Reframing Culture, an exhibition featuring new video works and installations that both embrace and challenge notions of what it is to be a contemporary artist and a person of color.   Black Borders: Artists of Color, Reframing Culture considers a creative practice by people of color that is independent and unapologetic, rejecting notions that an artist of color should only engage in the context of  “a role model” or being a voice for their race or gender.  The exhibition includes a new multi-channel video presentation from Amir George, new photography by Erika DeFreitas, and a new installation and live performance by Anansi kNOwBody.   Fort Worth artist and writer Christopher Blay is guest curator for this exhibition.

Hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 12–5 pm, or by appointment. For visitor information please contact theartgalleries@tcu.edu or call 817.257.2588. Admission is free.
