Juneteenth Cincinnati presents “When Liberation Comes,” a visual art exhibition of commissioned new works by 10 local Cincinnati artists exploring the African diaspora. Curated by Jeni Jenkins , the exhibit runs from Feb. 25 – May 27, 2023.
The exhibition is the centerpiece of the 3rd Annual Voices of Freedom presented by Juneteenth Cincinnati, a visual and performing arts series examining Black history from a contemporary perspective and celebrating Black art and expression.
For Jenkins, the show is an invitation to envision.
“When liberation comes, what does it look like?” asked Jenkins. “What shape does it take? What’s at stake? What is lost, what is gained? While each artist’s experiences, perceptions, and visions are unique, their work contributes to the larger collective Black diasporic voice.”
Featured artists include: Nytaya Babbitt, Brent Billingsley, James Brown, Cierra Fogle, Brandon Hawkins, Javarri Lewis, Josie Love Roebuck, Rashad Manuel Jr, Adoria Maxberry, and Annie Ruth.
Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, February 25 from 6-8pm. Free, open to the public, light refreshments served.
The KHAC Lindner Gallery is located at 6620 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, OH 45213 (corner of Montgomery Rd and Kennedy Ave).
Gallery Hours are Tuesdays & Thursdays 12-5pm, and by appointment.
