Chosen Family brings together the work of three sets of emerging African American artists who are also close friends: Omari Jesse, Bria Edwards, and Olivia Bruce; Wesley Clark and Rodney Buck! Herring; Austin Auz Miles and Angelique Scott. Through their art, viewers are given an intimate look into their friendships which have developed over several years, some from the time of childhood. They have honed their artistic practice, supported one another through triumphs and failures, and have even been each others muses at times. What makes these friendships unique? How have their artistic practices influenced each other? How do artists support each other in a challenging industry? The idea of this professional and personal alignment becomes more nuanced when seen through the lens of the Black experience. This exhibition will explore these connections through conceptual and aesthetic processes.
