Flourishing is a collection of work depicting a more complete image of the Black experience outside of the tragedies romanticized across the media. Through a range of documentary photographs, abstract video and utopic imagery, this group exhibition celebrates the freedom Black people have experienced everyday despite the social hurdles they are faced with.
Spanning a two-floor gallery space, the exhibition presents new and existing works featuring documentary portraiture that captures Black people relaxed in various settings, a series of videos with Black people dancing out of pure bliss, colorful displays of original fashion, and archived stories, all which come together to embody the freedom, safety and pride that is and always has been present in Black culture in spite of all of the injustices faced with on a daily basis.
