Y’ALL NEED TO GET PUT UP ON GAME! Our brother @terrelltilford is manifesting over in Mid-City. On Saturday, May 12th, @bandofvices gallery will grand open with our sister @aprilbey_’s project Made in Space. Please support our fam and the arts. Details below:
On Saturday, May 12th, @TerrellTilford will be opening the flagship @BandofVices Art Gallery, with a solo exhibition by contemporary artist April Bey (@AprilBey_) entitled Made in Space.
Made in Space is the brand or label we see on clothing and space helmets used by gender fluid universe travelers focused on anti-colonizing adventures.
Made in Space includes works from the AfroFuturist Womanism series, which explores female afrofuturistic millennial entrepreneurialism via social media and the Internet. Blerdy in nature, juxtapositions of Star Trek and hip-hop culture also manifest in this series. Looking to the future acts as a therapeutic excretory practice in dealing with current day issues around race and discrimination globally.
. The Opening & Artist Reception for April Bey’s solo exhibition will take place Saturday, the 12th of May 2018, from 6pm – midnite. The artist will also present a walk-thru and talk on Saturday, the 2nd of June 2018, from 4pm - 6pm. Curated by Terrell Tilford, Made in Space marks April’s first exhibition with Band of Vices Art Gallery.

I got to spend all of Friday @chazenartuw for the biannual Curators' Conversations. It was a day full of rich and important conversations about the challenges facing curators and the art world and some of the great opportunities and evolutions within this field; most importantly, we talked about diversity, inclusion, and accessibility, and the actions galleries and museums are taking, and what they need to do better on.
It's always good to be a part of these discussions and to learn about the myriad of ways that people in the arts are working to change and grow the field. You can't make a comment at a table where you're not seated. The world does not make progress, become more creative, or become more just through passivity. It takes a willingness to step up and do the work, and to then look at that work with a critical eye to see if we're achieving what we set out to do. For all the challenges, I'm glad to be working on a field that helps define and strengthen the cornerstones of our culture.
. **I'm also glad for those moments in between discussions when I got to sneak away and see the art. Take a work break, invite a friend, and check out the current exhibits at the museum. These paintings in the Ancestral Modern exhibit are 👌🙌 ♥️
COSMIC DUST | Someone once said something to the value that the purpose of art is to remove the dust from daily life. Dust free zone here, just a sliver of white matter. Check out my highlights, feeling them the way you feel a good outfit. Also come to my show in a few weeks, details in bio. 🤙🏽◽️◾️
