New Exhibit at the Gibbes Museum

The Gibbes Museum of Art will welcome a new exhibition to the Art Sales Gallery by former visiting artist Amiri Farris beginning July 26.  

  • What: The Natural Duality in the Meta Season
  • Where: Gibbes Museum of Art, Art Sales Gallery
  • When: Wednesday, July 26 – Sunday, September 10

The Natural Duality in the Meta Season showcases a collection of paintings and assemblages that delves into the intricate duality of humanity’s connection with the world. With the rapid advancements in technology, language and virtual reality, our collective consciousness has been undergoing profound changes. The exhibition illustrates how the legacy of the African diaspora culture intersects with nature, land and new technologies. Through symbolic imagery and iconography, this collection explores cultural intersections while emphasizing the importance of climate awareness and new ways of contemplating the past and present in the American South and sea islands.  

For a deeper look into Amiri’s work, guests are invited for an Artist Talk on Saturday, July 29 at 2:00 pm in the Art Sales Gallery. To view images, click here
