The new show at the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art–Climate Change, System Change, Personal Change–runs from Friday, March 4th to Friday April 29th at the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art, 148 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, New York.
Black on the Ground, White in the Air, features new two dimensional work which artist Ashley Powell states “explores and confronts the destruction of the environment–including climate change as well as air, water and food pollution– through the lenses of racism and classism. It also addresses the grave consequences of inaction, which can prove to be just as harmful as oppression itself.”Powell made national headlines last fall with an exhibit at the University of Buffalo, which included placement of ”black only” and “white only” signs around campus. This provoked heated conversation at the university about racism and the boundaries of art.
Climate Change, System Change, Personal Change opens with a reception on First Friday, March 4th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art, 148 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo. The show closes April 29th.
