Never Apart launches its winter 2021 exhibitions in the form of virtual tours every Thursday at 6 p.m. from January 21 to February 11. The link to each virtual opening will be shared across Never Apart’s social media.
JOY AS RESISTANCE is our response to society telling Afro-descendants to “shut up”, or that we are “too loud”, when we are even more inundated with images of trauma. Joy can also help us heal. For us, Grecia Palomino, Hanna Che, Harry Julmice, Neldy Germain, Niti Marcelle Mueth, Schaël Marcéus and Thierry-Jean Charles, reveling in joy is an act of resistance.
Each artwork evokes a thought, a reflection, or a question for those who take the time to look attentively. Unexpected realities that resonate with the past, present and future to a more conscientious audience.
