Event Description

PIXELATING: BLACK IN NEW DIMENSIONS

MoCADA announces the opening of Pixelating: Black in New Dimensions curated by MoCADA’s 2011-2012 Curatorial Fellows, Zemen Kidane, Isissa Komada-John, and Jabari Owens-Bailey. Pixelating will be the first exhibition on view in MoCADA’s new Project Space, an innovative venue for experimental exhibitions and works by emerging artists and curators at the James E. Davis 80 Arts Building in Brooklyn, New York.

 

Artists: Nida Abidi, Crystal Z. Campbell, Delphine Diallo & Sidi “Leghead” Abdul-Khaaliq, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Janelle Iglesias, Lorra Jackson and Jacolby Satterwhite.


If one gets close enough, zooms in to get an intimate look, can the color black become pixelated? Pixelating is a series of five curatorial projects taking place in various formats from November 17, 2011 to
February 25, 2012. Under the overarching theme of Pixelating, the curatorial series highlights the discreet elements that directly challenge notions of a universal Black identity. Pixelating brings together works of contemporary artists, writers and filmmakers who engage with issues of cultural authenticity, hybridity, memory, and re-imagining Diaspora in a globalized world. Pixelating seeks to add to the lineage of an ever-evolving Black aesthetic and creates a visual language for current debates over the continued necessity for overt racial engagement versus the validity of racial ambiguity in the Obama Era. Pixelating deconstructs the monolith, bringing to light contemporary concepts of identity and self-definition in this
current moment.
