Bevelyn Afor Ukah: Our Ecology: Shifting Our Gaze Inward

  • This event has passed.

October 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bevelyn Afor Ukah was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia within a multicultural Black, Nigerian-American family. A huge part of her life’s work is about exploring how humans can make immense connections across cultures and perspectives.  Her art reflects a collaboration of perspectives on race, sexuality, & body image. Her pieces can inspire inquiry on how these identity markers connect us to an ecological responsibility to healing and reimagining. She says, “We are all stardust, and each of us have an immense power to make positive changes within and all around us.” Her belief in our cosmic connections shows up in most of her work. The exhibition runs September 30–October 30, with a reception on Saturday, October 22 from 7–9pm and an Artist Talk at 8pm.
