Event Details

NonToxic Masculinity is an exhibition that seeks to control the narrative by shifting away from the gaze of main stream media. It is a fresh and refreshing revelation that spotlights strength yet tenderness as it adjusts the lens and encourages a broader view of African American men, both young and old. The show invites a re-interpretation of the stereotypical reflex to respond to men of color, particularly Americans of African descent, as dark, dangerous, ominous, and foreboding. The works circle around the idea of sensitivity and emotion, and that idea shows up over and over again throughout the work and within the exhibition as a deeply rooted juxtaposition.
