Curated by Melvin A. Marshall and set to open in celebration of Juneteenth, this first in a planned series of annual invitationals takes a look at art history through a specific lens of intergenerational engagement and discourse. Artists have always cast an eye toward the past for inspiration and context in tackling the pressing issues of their own time. This interdisciplinary exhibition brings together a stylistically diverse array of modern voices whose art assertively confronts not only the politics, pandemics and quests for justice in racial, gender, economic and environmental arenas which define this moment, but also seeks for connectivity with the way masters from the past have done the same in their own eras.
