(RE)CLAMATION: A youth curated photography exhibition

Fri June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

We all have a right to define ourselves. But for Black youth that right to define ourselves is not a given one. Colorism, texturism, racism, homophobia, sexism, and so much more tell us stories of ourselves that hurt. The ideas circling around about what it means to be good enough, Black enough, pretty enough, dignified enough … and just simply enough cause stress and anxiety that affects their mental health and sense of identity. So what does it look like to powerfully (re)claim oneself as a practice of radical healing? This exhibition explores art as a medium for confronting harmful experiences, affirming your worth, and reclaiming your power. (RE)CLAMATION is a testimony to the artists’ determination to be well and to claim themselves as loved, worthy, and more than enough.

This exhibition is presented by The Beautiful Project as part of the Durham Arts Council Exhibit Program.
