Episode 151: Today I talk to Charlotte movie producer, Tony Elwood. We kind of go back in time 3 years ago to an exhibition on Camp Green, that he designed for the Levine Museum of the New South. This is a well-kept secret that even long-time Charlotteans don’t know about.
Even though it’s not a current exhibition, I thought it was especially relevant now, as their dealings with the Spanish Flu was not unlike our “new” normal with Covoid 19.
Episode 150: Today I talk with artists Alteronce Gumby & Tariku Shiferaw about their A Muffled Sound Underwater exhibition, which questions the historical context of the color black & how these perceptions influence our responses. This exhibition is put on in conjunction with the Latchkey Gallery. It is showing at 361 Canal Street in NYC, by appointment only from February 21 – March 28, 2020.
An iteration of the exhibition will continue to Mehari Sequar Gallery in collaboration with the Smithsonian Museum in June, 2020.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue produced by LatchKey Gallery with an essay by Niama Safia Sandy.
Episode 149: You can’t deny that eyes are the window to the soul. Today I go on-site to see Bree Stallings’s solo exhibition, To be Seen & Celebrated. Bree & I chat about the project behind the exhibition, where she was commissioned to paint 100 individual eyeballs in memory of a loved one.
Bree gives a percentage of it to the residents Brookhill Village, an affordable housing community in Charlotte, for eye exams & glasses.
