EXHIBITION: Carefully Broken, Unfortunately Beautiful

Atlanta native Shanequa Gay will feature a thought-provoking exhibition October 4 – 25 in Converse College’s Milliken Art Gallery called Carefully Broken, Unfortunately Beautiful. Gay has drawn critical acclaim for her depictions of Southern life and black women. In this exhibition, she explores 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. Artist talk scheduled for October 4 at 6 p.m., followed by a reception. Free.
