What does it mean to be SEEN? To be viewed, treated, and loved as a human being? This exhibition brings together nine emerging artists of color who are questioning the dominant narratives and imagery assciated with black male identity. There artists are un-apologetically urging the viewer to step outside of of stereotypes and prejudices that stigmatize black men and focus on themes of love, family, pain and pride. The themes presented in the exhibition are shared amongst all people and connect us as one. So, do you really see me? Do our differences make you uncomfortable? Together, these artists are working through the struggle and asking us to acknowledge the past, work to change the present, and be hopeful that in the future everyone is treated with love.
