This exhibition, curated by Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, engages with a legacy of black art spanning over 50 years through nine exciting contemporary visionaries.  This collective body of work reflects on the black experience as artists and as Americans. Artists Holly Bass, Allana Clarke, Wesley Clark, Billy Colbert, Larry Cook, Jamea Richmond Edwards, Amber Robles-Gordon, Stanley Squirewell and Stephanie Williams create their work using a variety of media, style and technique.  

 

In 1965, Spiral was a group of black artists who gathered as a collective and held a single exhibition May 14 – June 15, 1965. The collective considered the question, "What does it mean to be a black artist?"  Spiral, Recoil continues to examine that question through work reflecting our current moment and how we got here. Honoring the legacy of the 1965 group, Spiral, Recoil presents new questions considering black representation in the art world and beyond.  In 50 years of “progress,” how far have we actually come?
