ABOUT THIS ART

This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.

Throughout history contributions of minority groups have often been exploited for a myriad of motives. As a result, these groups often lack accurate representation of their culture and its origins. In today’s culture art can act as a vehicle to transform fiction into reality and place the power back in the hands of the ancestors allowing them to reclaim their history and voice.

Detroit, the most densely African-American populated major city in the United States, has often seen its narrative subjugated just like the minority group that resides within its borders. But Detroit lends a unique voice to not only the African-American experience, but American culture as a whole. The fact, that Detroit is a true black city, is where Detroit GRIND finds its unique strengths.

FEATURED ARTISTS INCLUDE:
Olayami Dabls - NNII - Rashaun Rucker - Sydney James - Tiff Massey - Tylonn Sawyer



ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Olayami Dabls has worked as a visual story teller using a wide range of materials for more than 45 years. His work uses references from African material culture to tell stories about the human condition. Using iron, rock, wood and mirrors, Dabls found that these four materials are primary building blocks that speak universally to all cultures. In the years between 1975-1985, Dabls joined the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History as a curator and artist-in-residence. There, he learned how challenging it was to talk about the civil rights movement, because in talking about emotionally charged history, there is no fixed perspective, only the memories and experiences of millions of individuals. This inspired him to create the African Bead Museum as a space for communal understanding through his own sculptures and his collection of African material culture.
