Event description

Description

On Thursday, September 19, Nubian Hueman hosts an artist talk featuring Artist/Curator Charles Philippe Jean-Pierre along with photographers of the Photo Noir Exhibition.

When one thinks of photography as an art form, the black-and-white print is a dominant image. Photo Noir is a group exhibition curated by Haitian American Artist Charles Philippe Jean-Pierre. It is a conscious response to an image-driven society propelled by cell-phone technology. Society now has the ability to document every encounter, action and meal. Since its invention in the mid-1800s, black-and-white photographs have had the ability to distill a scene to its essence, while still evoking drama and mystery. Photo Noir channels the mystery of Blackness through the black and white print.

The photography exhibition features the works of Kirth Bobb, Michael Kendall, Jarrett Hendrix, Michael Anthony, Phil Martin, Charles Jean-Pierre, Julian Thomas and Adedayo Kosoko. The pieces feature black and white scenes of everyday life in places as far-reaching as Haiti, Colombia and Cuba to Southeast Washington DC. The exhibition includes every manner of styles, from landscape to still life to portrait. The collective of black fathers, artists, and creatives was assembled to create a community expression of black art and black love. The exhibition was originally seeded by Nubian Hueman for the Black Love Experience 2019.

We will also be accepting donations that will go towards helping the people of the Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian. For more information on where the money will go click here: http://bit.ly/2lG09x6
