On Saturday, May 12th, Terrell Tilford will be opening the flagship @BandofVices Art Gallery, with a solo exhibition by contemporary artist April Bey (@AprilBey_) entitled Made in Space.
Made in Space is the brand or label we see on clothing and space helmets used by gender fluid universe travelers focused on anti-colonizing adventures.
Made in Space includes works from the AfroFuturist Womanism series, which explores female afrofuturistic millennial entrepreneurialism via social media and the Internet. Blerdy in nature, juxtapositions of Star Trek and hip-hop culture also manifest in this series. Looking to the future acts as a therapeutic excretory practice in dealing with current day issues around race and discrimination globally.
The Opening & Artist Reception for April Bey’s solo exhibition will take place Saturday, the 12th of May 2018, from 6pm – midnite. The artist will also present a walk-thru and talk on Saturday, the 2nd of June 2018, from 4pm – 6pm. Curated by Terrell Tilford, Made in Space marks April’s first exhibition with Band of Vices Art Gallery.
