2006 - FREEDOM FIGHTERS:
AMERICAN LEGENDS RE-IMAGINED
Curated by Roderick Southall of Obsidian Arts (MN), Freedom Fighters features 12 graphic artists from across the country who have designed mock posters of iconic African Americans including Malcom X, Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner and the Black Panthers. This subversive exhibition uses movie poster artwork to examine the 1970s Black Exploitation film genre and its role in casting contemporary truths and challenging fixed notions of history. Participating artists include Arvay Adams, Michael Paul Britto, Ernest Arthur Bryant III, Caiphus, Roger Cummings, Detekh, Christopher Harrison, Rodney Jackson, Jason Scott Jones, Kobe Mowatt, Duane Smith and Shalette Cauley Wandrick.
