April 21 - May 22, 2016

Kameelah Janan Rasheed’s ongoing research-intensive practice looks at the pluralities of blackness and the interplay between legibility and opaqueness. A sprawling constellation of monochromatic textual and figurative work, On Refusal considers a collection of self-recorded street sermons as a starting point to map the histories of improvisation and religious heterodoxy among Black Americans, particularly her family.

Opening Reception: Thursday April 21st, 6-8pm (artist talk at 6:30pm)
DUMBO Art Walk: Thursday May 5th, 6-8pm
