ART OPENING: “Irmandade | Ibraim Nascimento”

September 23, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW THRU NOVEMBER 25, 2023: Afro-Brazilian artist Ibraim Nascimento illustrates the bond of kinship between brothers, sisters and the deeper connection between diverse people through his art and performance. “Irmandade” is the Portuguese word for brotherhood and the bond of kinship. Using the lines of thread as an analogy for connection and reconnection, Nascimento connects each canvas with red thread. On the canvases are images of Black people connected to each other by blood and ancestry. Sometimes these threads signify a search for something deeper, perhaps belonging, self, a lost connection or a confirmation of the existence of this concept. During the period of slavery, Black people were connected to each other by chains and taken from their homeland. Today, they reconnect in a shared gaze, customs, stories and in their collectivities and spirit. This reunion is the possibility of rebuilding the notion of “irmandade.” For details, visit https://www.thecollective.org or call (713) 523-1616.

SAVE THE DATE for an artist talk on Saturday, October 14 at 2:00 PM.
