A Black Man Made This Art

  • Future Tenant 819 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15222 United States (map)

"A Black Man Made This Art" explores oppressive vocabulary and the role of the oppressed in claiming ownership of culturally offensive language.  Rooted in the spirit of agitational propaganda, artist D.S. Kinsel presents a mixed media, text based show focusing on the action of re-appropriating racially charged epithets and traditional imagery of Americana.  Challenging, provocative, vivid typography, and images of confronted patriotism are expressed through digital and physical media.

An Opening Reception will take place on Friday, September 9th, 6:00-9:00pm. An additional Reception will be held on Friday, September 23rd in honor of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's fall Gallery Crawl event, also from 6:00-9:00pm. Both receptions are FREE and open to public, featuring complimentary beverages thanks to Future Tenant's generous sponsor, Straub Beer.

A Black Man Made This Art is on view from September 9th - October 23rd, 2016.
