PARABLE 003 is an exhibition of black visual and conceptual contemporary art rooted in the liberatory possibilities of black community, settlement, and creative expression. Artists’ work incorporates visual, material, and cultural aspects of a new free black state through video, sculpture, textile, sound, and digital media.
Part ode and part elegy to Octavia Butler’s unfinished Parable trilogy, this exhibition investigates the vanishing point of an idea. It is a
blueprint for the near future of black sovereignty where California’s histories of migration, radical participation, and experimental living converge into a foundation for the future of Blackness.
LACE’s Emerging Curator Program is designed to discover curatorial talent in Los Angeles and gives an opportunity for an emerging curator to partner with LACE. Applicants are reviewed by a panel that recommends a compelling project to the LACE team consistent with LACE’s experimental spirit.
Support for this exhibition provided by the Pasadena Art Alliance and the Wilhelm Family Foundation.
