October 12, 2019-January 25, 2020
Stephen Towns: Rumination and a Reckoning

At the center of this exhibition, the monumental installation Birth of a Nation (2014) represents a Black woman nursing a white infant against the backdrop of the first official flag of the United States. Suspended above a mound of earth, the quilt will be surrounded by Towns’s Story Quilts (2016–2019), a cycle of works in luminous fabrics and glass beads that chronicle the life of Nat Turner and the 1831 rebellion he led against slavery. A pair of quilted oval portraits of Nat and Cherry Turner (2018) adds a significant dimension to this narrative, considering the role of a marriage in historic events.

October 12, 2019-January 25, 2020
Ramsess: The Gathering

Ramsess’ mural-scale quilt The Gathering (2012) reimagines Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper (1495-98) as a memorial to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old who was shot and killed on February 26, 2012. This sacred meal is attended by twelve historical figures, one still living: Malala Yousafzai, the Pakastani activist who becomes a symbol for peace, justice, and possibility. With The Gathering at its center, this focused exhibition brings together a selection of Ramsess’s quilted portraits—monuments to individuals of crucial significance to American history whose stories have been suppressed or overlooked through politics of race, age, and gender: Sojourner Truth, Ruby Bridges, Cathay Williams, Malcolm X, H. Rap Brown, Huey P. Newton, and George Stinney.

Upcoming Public Programs include Artist Talks at 7:00pm on the following evenings:
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 – Stephen Towns and Ramsess
Thursday, November 14, 2019 – Luis Flores
Thursday, December 12, 2019 – Kenturah Davis

LA Blacksmith

For decades black artists in Los Angeles have worked with metal for its historic and symbolic significance, as well as for other sociocultural, political, and practical considerations. LABlacksmith highlights this tradition, from historic Los Angeles metal sculpture that signifies the durability of West African metalsmithing aesthetics to contemporary explorations of iron and steel alloys, bronze, copper, tin, aluminum, and gold. Beginning with Beulah Woodard’s homages to African mask making, LABlacksmith examines how the Watts Rebellion and other political and aesthetic ideas…
