Residency Reception: Melanated Magic by Danielle Demetria East

Saturday, Aug 24 · 7pm


Please join us for the reception and celebration of our summer Artist in Residence.

“Melanated Magic” is a solo exhibition of work by Danielle Demetria East. East explores the complexities of Black women through hair politics, traditional modes of healing, and the ideology of the Black Girl Magic movement. She is inspired by the works of Black women such as Toni Morrison, Beyte Saar, Black beauticians, and the need for a deeper understanding of renewal within the Black femme community. East uses a variety of culturally classed materials, found objects, and African American Vernacular Phrases as tools for processing generational pain.

East’s self-published book of poetry “Melanated Magic” will also be available for purchase.

We're looking for artists to partner with!
