In partnership with the Long Center for the Performing Arts, Carver Museum ATX presents: Field Order 15: And Other Broken Promises, an exhibit curated by Carver Museum ATX. In support of Martin Luther King Day with Ta-Nehisi Coates and on view through Black History Month, Field Order 15: And Other Broken Promises examines the paradox of American exceptionalism and the call for reparations. This exhibit engages artists of African descent around the concept of repair. Eleven artists were asked to consider what is required for America to atone for the continued denial of full citizenship to Black people and what repair would feel like in the body. Themes in the exhibit are presented through a series of short film-based vignettes devised around a series of prompts and displayed next to sculptural and two-dimensional works that explore repair, identity, and contradiction. Works by Alexis Hunter, Tia Boyd, Queen Deelah, Elizabeth Hudson, Kemi Yemi-Ese, Chris Hills, Moyo Oyelola, Joe Anderson, Carlton Wilcoxson, Elisha Luckett, and Hakeem Adewumi. Curated by Carre Adams.
Join us for the closing at Gallery 701 at the Long Center on Friday, March 23, 2023 at 6:00PM. Admission is free.
