Exhibitions and Shows
Storefronts is right around the corner from AAC, at 13th and Vine, at the building known as buddy’s place. Storefronts is a project of the Miami U. Center for Community Engagement. We are a group of Over-the-Rhine residents, students, and local artists who use art to engage with issues that directly impact neighborhood people. their focus is how injustice manifests in the socioeconomic, racial, and political systems of power that too often determine community life in Over-the-Rhine, but also we make work that puts forth visions of hope, equity, and justice.
BLACKLIBERATION is a series of 3 art shows at Storefronts by Black artists whose work directly addresses the most current, urgent call for racial justice. DeeDee’s paintings and sculptures were exhibited this summer in the first of the series, BLACK LIBERATION 1. On opening night, in addition to DeeDee’s work in our storefront gallery, we were totally fortunate to have a live performance titled Of Nina—local artist Teisha Murray had choreographed a dance that was performed by a local company Pones, that also included a spoken word piece by Murray. For BLACKLIBERATION 2, Le Thompson exhibited their mixed media photos+text, in a collaboration with spoken word artist Malia Forte. Malia also performed live on opening night, with several of her spoken word pieces, plus played the trumpet.
I am creating, these two scenes to talk about why must out children suffer and go through this. I want to have two memorials of a mother holding there child or baby with these butterflies around them and these flowers. Kind of like a statue or a gravestone the mothers are silhouettes and the center painting shows a child with a trail of tears running down the face into a puddle of tears that unite everything together as it asks a question of hope towards its viewers.
