When: Through 2nd March 2021
Black Voices: Friend of My Mind is a new exhibition from Destinee Ross-Sutton, international art curator, advisor, gallerist, artist manager and advocate based in NY, marking the launch of her newest endeavor, a commitment to physical spaces.
Black Voices: Friend of My Mind is an expansion and continuation of the conversation based on the multidimensionality of the Black experience. It is Destinee Ross-Sutton’s second exhibition in this series. Her first was inaugurated with the much celebrated “BLACK VOICES/BLACK MICROCOSM” at CFHILL in Stockholm, Sweden April 8-May 16, 2020.
This edition of Black Voices explores rest and wellness, self-love and care, introspection and comfort. In the many instances where others attempt to deny us simple pleasures, we are encouraged to deny ourselves. That this is a truism is due to the preoccupation many Black folks have with basic mental, physical and spiritual survival.
Along with galleries such as David Zwirner, Victoria Miro, Thaddeus Ropac, Pilar Corrias, among others, Ross-Sutton will be the first Black owned gallery to join the VorticXR digital platform family of galleries.
