HOUSE PARTY WITH GBA’S EXTENDED FAMILY: LAKEA SHEPARD

  • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm | Tuesday January 10, 2023
  • Gallery | Ace Hotel Brooklyn
  • Free

Around the corner and down Bond St., our neighbors Guilty By Association are building a digital bridge to empower the creative unseen, redistribute wealth and reengineer an antiquated system — art.

This season, we are partnering with GBA for a trio of solo exhibitions featuring a selection of their artist kin. We’re calling it “Extended Family.” The first gallery show of the new year opens January 10.

Join us to celebrate Lakea Shepard‘s work!

 

Bead by bead, Lakea creates intricate head sculptures engulfed in universal emblems of Blackness. Her work alludes to slave masks as she constructs pieces that portray the suffocating contemporary oppression of Black people, acknowledging a painful history in order to heal the wounds of her community.
