A Familiarity That WARMS features recent works by Flux Factory alumni Layo Bright and Kamari Carter, exploring themes of representation, visibility, and perception. With sensorial overloads of everything from mass media distractions to screen oriented communication we have been working to adapt to our new “normal”. Over the course of the year, various national and global events have caused us to pause and reflect on ourselves, societies and communities. These reflective moments have led to movements for collective action, racial equality, calls for solidarity, and a refusal to be silenced.
With the exhibition title taken from “Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race” by Reni Eddo-Lodge; the artists use sound, prints and installations to create a space for contemplation on issues affecting Black communities in America and the diaspora. Though both artists address different types of injustices to Black bodies—they utilize lines and patterns as a way of abstracting, connecting, and questioning our perception of and proximity to police brutality and migration.
