In many spaces - tech, business, fashion, social movements, we’re considering that there’s an increasing force of diversity and inclusivity. A browning, nonconforming push into exclusive worlds that were exclusively male, white and binary. It’s also happening in Art - Fine Art. Art pieces we as a culture have held up to be the pinnacle of prestige, beauty and exclusivity are being reinterpreted with people unlike the ones before.
A few months ago I took part in a new exhibit by SameSource titled, Reinterpreted. The exhibit reimagines famous pieces such as Olympia, La Véríté, and the Scènes de l'inquisition en Espagne (L’autodafé).
This week the exhibit launches and I’m featured in 3 pieces!
- Olympia Reinterpreted 2019 SameSource based on 1863 by Édouard Manet
- Scènes de l'inquisition en Espagne (L'autodafé) Reinterpreted 2019 SameSource based on 1879 by Gabriel Joseph Marie Augustin Ferrier
