“Charleena”, is being exhibited in “We Are the Story“.
Great news!!! Charleena’s portrait is going to tell her story in Minneapolis, where this national awakening all began.
We Are the Story, is a series of exhibitions which will be held in various sites in Minnesota. This is the very place that, after George Floyd’s death, became the epicenter of the nationwide protest movement against police brutality and racism in America.
This initiative is being created under the curatorial direction of Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, founder, Women of Color Quilters Network (WCQN) and the Textile Center.
Gone but Never Forgotten: Remembering Those Lost to Police Brutality is one of the 7 exhibitions in the series. It is a national juried exhibition showcasing 28 quilts that honor those whose lives were violently ended due to police negligence and brutality and critiques the targeting and criminalization of Black bodies throughout history.
This exhibit – Gone but Never Forgotten – will be at the Joan Mondale Gallery in the Textile Center, MN from September 15 through December 24, 2020
Keep coming back to this We Are the Story page to check the calendar of events and media coverage. This is bound to be a very significant exhibition.
