How these Black women curators are empowering artists to tell their own stories
ERICA MONET | WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 2021
Move The World, an exhibit at The Irwin House Global Art Center and Gallery on West Grand Boulevard, looks into “the extraordinary lives of ordinary sisters and queens” and creates and celebrates the unique composite of the Black woman through various lens, a view that is often unrepresented in mainstream media.
Misha McGlown, director of Irwin House, realizes the importance of telling a story from multiple perspectives.
In choosing the art, McGlown looks to “tell a story from many different perspectives.” In those differences she wanted each artist to show a facet of the Black woman in her “ youth, energy, power, sexuality, ordinariness, her sorrow and African heritage. I just wanted to make sure that each artist’s work embodied something different about the Black woman because we are complex and multifaceted.”
