Join us on The Public Good this week! We’ll hear from Jayne Hughes, Education Director at the Buffalo Arts Studio. She'll be discussing two upcoming exhibitions featuring Stacey Robinson and Black Kirby, as well as educational opportunities offered through the Studio.
On view from July 26-September 7, Stacey Robinson’s solo exhibition, “Black Imaginings” will feature large-scale digital images that explore representational justice informed by the work of W.E.D. Du Bois. Robinson’s work dismantles ideas of derogatory Black relations by distilling both form and content into bold, graphic representations.
And, also on view from July 26-September 7, Stacey Robinson and John Jennings of Black Kirby will present a new collaborative project, “Night Boy," a graphic novel that tells the story of a 15 year old victim of police brutality who becomes a pawn in a supernatural power struggle, and a guardian of the City of Light. Jennings and Robinson will work with students to create original artwork inspired by Afrofuturism, social justice, representation, and fantasy.
The works will share an opening reception on July 26 from 5pm-8pm at the Buffalo Arts Studio's July "Fourth Friday."
Check out the exhibit descriptions and then tune in live on Power 96.5 WNY at 10pm, and on PPG’s Facebook page at 1pm Tuesday, July 23rd. You won’t want to miss it!
The Buffalo Arts Studio is located in the Tri-Main Center at 2495 Main Street, Suite 500.
