About this Event

Exhibiting the work of Frank Schroeder

Frank Schroeder is an experienced French painter whose works have featured in prominent exhibitions in the US, UK and Spain. Partly revisiting classic religious and philosophical themes with a contemporary outlook, and partly exploring personal and introspective reflections, he composes paintings that burst with colour and tell stories. Schroeder intends for each viewer to embark on a journey via his works: either to their fears, their reality, or simply back to themselves.

"Black Politics Act One"

“In the beginning was Africa, the sculpted representation of traditions and generations. The "Black Politics" series affirms that African roots and descendents in Europe and the USA are not frozen in the past, folklore, or underdeveloped. Far from Tam-tam, dust, and misery, "Black Politics" redefines the modernity of traditional black culture. "Black Politics" shows that black roots are deep in the past,but are also modern, inventive and illustrative of the future. This exhibition is a political act as it responds to the violence and negative views towards blacks as seen in mass incarceration, systemic racism and U.S. policing. It is our rich stories that build new beginnings. The masks in "Black Politics" are honorable as they are a symbol of transformation. “ - Frank Schroeder
