Resplendent | General Public Opening Reception
Thursday, March 24 • 7-10pm | Ongoing through May 10
@ Mehari Sequar Gallery

Mehari Sequar Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming group exhibition “RESPLENDENT,” by artists Marraym Moma, Bria Sterling-Wilson, Heather Polk, Khaleelah I.L. Harris and Zoë Charlton. Curated by Teri Henderson, this 5-person exhibition will speak through the reconfigured works to the variation of Black feminine beauty, drawing from popular culture and their own personal archives. RESPLENDENT depicts Black women in various forms, resolute, resting, strong, soft centered and in focus. The exhibition will be twined with a concurrent showing at Connect+Collect Gallery in Baltimore.

The works in RESPLENDENT all signal the collective consciousness of Black women collagists and definitions of what is considered beautiful in popular culture. The artists in RESPLENDENT were asked to submit works that spoke to their own definitions of Black feminine beauty in their own worlds. The results are a garden of collages that are exquisite, generative, and full of depth and beauty, reflecting Black popular culture of both past and present, from old Jet Magazine advertisements to African sculpture.
