Inherited Truths | Inherited Prides December 1 - 4, 2016 Satellite Art Show | Booth #22, floor 2
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - The Southern to debut "Inherited Truths | Inherited Prides" at Satellite Art Show in South Beach Miami. Generational narratives are explored, exposed, and reckoned through performance-based photography, collage, printmaking, and sculpture. Brown considers memory, myth, and rituals of common objects and architectural spaces creating a confrontational and seductive story. Dudik questions the preservation of a convoluted history and the modern day re-enactors who aim to appropriate honor for their fallen ancestors. Quashie illustrates the vicious cycle of acquisition, sale, discipline, domestication and revolt / freedom upheaving the white-washed, romanticized re-branding of plantations in the American South. Together, the artists present a larger narrative which challenges the viewer’s own impressions of family and hidden histories which have been passed down through time.
