EPHRAIM UREVBU | The Naked Truth: An American Story in White, Red and Blue: Belmont University | Leu Gallery, Nashville TN
For 400 years, American culture and nationhood has been haunted, stalked, and tormented by the reality and symbols of racial injustice - the chains, the noose, the bullets. Now, well into the 21st century, the labels and suspicions and accusations, the marchings and riots, the righteous indignation, and "good trouble" rise again and again as a shadow on the land and as a spotlight on the hypocrisy of a nation that saw itself as the standard-bearer for "freedom." Artist Ephraim Urevbu presents a new body of provocative artwork confronting these and other issues in his forst solo exhibition at Belmont University in Nashville, TN (Leu Gallery) in the Fall of 2021.
A preview exhibition will be held 24 July at Urevbu Contemporary
