In October, Atlanta native Shanequa Gay will feature a thought provoking exhibition in the Milliken Art Gallery called Carefully Broken, Unfortunately Beautiful. Gay has drawn praise and critical acclaim for her depictions of southern life and black women. In this exhibition, she will explore the historical and contemporary social concerns of black culture to teach lessons about morality, society, identity, and human function. Through painting, performance, media, sculpture, and fabric motifs she has cultivated her own myths, survivor narratives, and new memories, by embodying the voice of the victimized.
The exhibition will run from October 4-25, 2018. Gay will present a Gallery Talk on October 4th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday – Thursday 2:00-5:00pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
