The World is a Mirror of My Freedom was organized in response to the increasingly visible, lawful violence against Black bodies in the United States. Bringing together works from five of McColl Center’s current and alumni artists-in-residence, the exhibition explores themes of Black masculinity, social movement and mobility, revolution, and resistance. The exhibition drifts across time, from the 1700s to the future, inviting reflection on how the past has conditioned the present.
The World is a Mirror of My Freedom features works by Marcus Kiser + Jason Woodberry, Shaun Leonardo, Dread Scott, and Charles E. Williams.
