“Coloured” was curated by Gary L. Moore. To some, the title may seem inappropriate in today’s culture, but to Moore, it evokes a response that focuses attention on the essential subject matter, conveying diverse renditions of contemporary African diasporic visual culture.
The exhibit is a vibrant journey exploring how pigment, when set down on canvas, paper or wood, changes with each surface, providing new meaning and context. The exhibit features the works of more than ten artists, all of African descent, including the late Purvis Young, who was an inspiration for Moore.
“Coloured” runs through February 8, 2019 at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts. Hours and more information call 954-786-7876.
