“Care•ful/less” Solo Exhibition by Gerald A. Brown. Solo Gallery
Artist Reception: January 14, 6-8pm
January 14 @ 5:58 pm - March 25 @ 5:00 pm
Care•ful/less is a glimpse at the inherent friction occurring internally when realizing one’s fullest self. Tending to one’s gifts, flaws and dreams is messy and often conflicts with one’s desire to be more careless or more careful. Does the act of caring less make you more mindful of oneself? Or does being very careful make you deserving of care from others? Can negligence be advantageous? At the intersection of optimism and bitterness, I wonder how caring am I really. A moment of celebration and bereavement, this is a grand toast as well as salute to internal battle waged, within a young Black girl.
