Event Description

City Galley is honored to present Legacy & Rupture, a group show curated by interdisciplinary artist and educator Howard el-Yasin. Work by artists Nathaniel Donnett, Sika Foyer, Merik Goma, James Montford, James Ransome, Kamar Thomas, and Marisa Williamson will be on display from May 1 through May 30, with an opportunity to meet the artists during extended gallery hours on Saturday, May 1, 1PM - 5PM.

 

Legacy & Rupture brings together these seven wonderful contemporary black artists whose work expresses the multiplicity of our identities framed by the everydayness of precarity, trauma, and memories. Critical black consciousness thinker Christina Sharpe reminds us that “the past that is not past reappears, always, to rupture the present.” If rupture, as such, is also understood to mean resistance, black aesthetic practitioners have the capacity to resist the historical materiality (race, class, gender, and sexuality) and the subjectivity of blackness. The artwork in this show explores differences in representation rather than the reproduction of blackness. 

 

Howard el-Yasin is an interdisciplinary artist/educator/curator based in New Haven. His practice investigates value systems and cultural signifiers of contemporary everydayness, marginality, and materiality. He collects fragments of organic (banana skins, human hair, dryer lint...) and industrial detritus as surplus production. His practice occupies installation, performance, sculpture, sound, and video mediums.

el-Yasin received an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016. He has exhibited nationally and has been a Visiting Artist-in-Residence at private high schools and an adjunct college instructor in Connecticut, Georgia, and Maryland. He has attended residencies at Vermont Studio Center and Anderson Ranch. He is a past recipient of MICA’s Leslie King-Hammond and FASQA awards, and has held volunteer leadership, curatorial positions with several non-profit organizations.

 

Legacy & Rupture is free and open to the public, and runs May 1 - May 30, 2021. Visitors can Meet the Artist on Saturday, May 1 during extended gallery hours, 1PM - 5PM. City Gallery is located at 994 State Street, New Haven, CT 06511. Modified gallery hours for May are Friday - Sunday, 1PM - 4PM or by appointment. Due to Covid-19, the number of visitors at any one time will be limited to 5. All visitors are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing protocols.
