ExhibitsDamon Davis: All Hands On Deck
Damon Davis is a St. Louis-based artist whose work addresses social issues and spans a range of mediums. In All Hands On Deck, Davis photographed individuals in Ferguson, Missouri, with their “hands up,” recalling the gesture of Michael Brown before his death, transforming it into a powerful symbol of peaceful protest. The hands of people of various ages and races highlight the diversity of the support for the protest and the importance of collective action. The photographs, initially printed in mass quantities, were wheat-pasted on boarded up buildings -- businesses that had been broken into during public unrest. As media coverage of the events in Ferguson increased, Davis’ images of solidarity were seen in the background of the events that continued throughout the year.
Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Institutional support of MCASD is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Fund. Exhibit runs June 4 to July 24.
Celebrate the work of more than 75 active duty armed forces members who engaged in a series of weekly art classes and visits to the museum to produce original works of art as a means of coping with the effects of combat-related stress. These works will be on display at MCASD La Jolla July 29 through September 4.
