“As a Matter of Black” is an annual exhibition curated by Bart Mervil of the Miami Urban Contemporary Experience (MUCE). The exhibit confronts the ideas about blackness as a color, ethnicity, currency and even universal matter. This particular exhibition explores the significance of having a seat at the table: socially; economically; politically; and casually – within the context of the Black Life experience. Featured artists include Robert McKnight, Solely Supreme, Sona, Tavare Hill and Vladymir Acloque.
MUCE is an arts production company that installs and curates pop-up exhibitions to activate corporate and community brands. Working in heritage neighborhoods, the company also brings rich cultural programming from hyper local spaces to the cultural explorer through live painters, performers, festivals and niched cultural experiences.
“As A Matter of Black – A Seat at the Table” runs January 4 – February 22, 2019 at Bailey Contemporary Arts. Opening Reception is Friday, January 4, 6pm-9pm (during Old Town Untapped). Hours and more information at www.baileyarts.org or call 954-284-0141.
