The brownstone gallery’s latest exhibition opens today, with a group show of paintings, sculpture, and wood works by Simone Elizabeth Saunders, Moridja Kitenge Banza, Erika DeFreitas, and Shanna Strauss. The four artists use their respective bodies of work to challenge narratives—both folkloric and within the canon of art history—that fail to engage with the Black diaspora. As the show title suggests, their re-interpretations of classical and spiritual iconography seeks to enrich the understanding of multifaceted narratives and histories.
