April 8 - May 7
Danièle Dennis / COLOUR, VALUE, HUE
The New Gallery is pleased to present ‘Colour, Value, Hue’ by Danièle Dennis.
Opening reception is Friday, April 8 at 8:00 PM. Admission is free and all are welcome.
‘Color, Value and Hue’ is a solo exhibition featuring the work of Danièle Dennis that seeks to investigate the complexities and dynamics surrounding the visibility/invisibility of the racialized identity within the dominant society. Through video performance, material exploration and installation, Dennis considers the confusion, reluctance and overarching politics that often accompany discussions about blackness, identity and social structures. The exhibition offers a visual and conceptual manifestation of the artist’s inquiry into everyday encounters, a means that serves to also confront her own discomfort and tensions. Exploring the black narrative as counter discourse, Dennis embraces a level of absurdity by turning things commonly deemed as repellents or abject and repackaging them into things of beauty and value (and vice versa).
