Lakeshia Reid, More things in Heaven and Earth

 

Lakeshia Reid
Between Here and There

March 19 – April 24
Upfront Gallery

With a nod to the fantastical, Lakeshia Reid’s work offers interpretations of #BlackGirlMagic – a phrase/movement that celebrates positive messages and images of black women. Through the duality of abstraction and representation, she juxtaposes women of various demeanors with colorful layers of ornamentation and texture.  In this context, she explores their identities, and her own, while crossing a conceptual threshold.

Site-Specific Installation:
Tedd Anderson

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
