Damien Davis: “Color Cargo”
September 6, 2019 - November 3, 2019Free
The Visual Arts Center of Richmond presents “Color Cargo,” an exhibition of work by Damien Davis, curated by Jennifer-Navva Milliken. “Color Cargo” examines, through the distinct voice of the artist, the role of wood in historical and contemporary commercial transport—from the mid-Atlantic slave trade to e-commerce—and the subjective power of color as a tool for assigning value, in order to create a deceptively appealing space for confronting bias and dehumanization in contemporary society. “Color Cargo” debuted at the Center for Art in Wood (Philadelphia, Pa.) in May 2019.
