“Under the looming threat of death, how might we inspire life? Through what mechanisms could we resist the psychological violence and despair inspired by the threat of violence while at the same time usher in hope?”
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance features the work of visual artist Fahamu Pecou, who elevates and recontextualizes Black life and death to inspire hope, healing, and a sense of justice.
The exhibition seeks to reframe the political and societal violence against Black bodies in America by incorporating imagery from African-based spiritual traditions.
This exhibition will be on display in the Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum from Sept. 19 through Nov. 21.
