It's the last week to see 'Reclaimed Rage; Resistance,' presented by @blackfolkny, curated by Dalaeja Foreman (@pennilessvagabond) at @bronxartspace. Come through between now and Saturday to see this incredible exhibition which features quite a bit of my work, new and not so new. β€’

George Pitts, thank you for seeing me and for looking with me and for convincing me that people were interested in what I saw and how I saw it. I, like so many others, am so lucky to have called you a mentor and friend. You challenged me to think more critically about myself and my relationship to art-making-- and never questioned when I challenged you back. Most importantly, you showed me one model of how to survive as a black man with lots of questions- and how to ask questions to a room full of people who weren't listening and make them hear me . Your curiosity, gentleness, intellect, and grace will forever be remembered and I will continue to strive for your unmatched wisdom, ambition and stilo. (and thank you for understanding the criticality of including C-Murder's 'Down for my Niggas' in my undergraduate thesis paper- which you also told me would be never be finished... unless I stopped making pictures.) I love you, George. We were all incredibly lucky to have you. RIP #georgepitts #picturingsexuality

Por que yo te quiero mucho nena linda de mi corazΓ³n, @workofartis Feliz cumpleaΓ±os!

Opening (this Thursday) February 9 @bronxartspace: Black Folk presents Reclaimed Rage; Resistance, an experiential group exhibition of contemporary artists working with photography, sculpture, collage and painting that explores the importance of rage in the age of resistance.
By collaborating with revolutionary working-class-centered organizations and collectives across the Bronx, Reclaimed Rage; Resistance seeks to become an incubator for influencing community-empowering action and dialogue around the inevitable rage of an oppressive system. #RRR

A selection of studies for new 'Value Portraits' I made during my one-day residency @acehotelnewyork is now up on their blog. In a few weeks, I'll release a zine of the full edit β€’ Image: 'Untitled/Study for Value, (Emilio), 2017' #aceair
