ZuCot Gallery opens its first all women’s exhibition entitled, O’ Freedom, My Beloved featuring works by Georgette Baker, Tiffany Charisse, Angela Davis Johnson, Rochelle Johnson, Carolyn Mazloomi, Tracy Murrell, Charlotte-Riley Webb, Dawn Williams Boyd, and Reisha Williams. This event is free and open to the public.

What does freedom mean in a world that always simultaneously seeks to control you, while it also disposes of you? How do we, as Black women [and artists] reclaim our freed selves? What does that reclamation mean, and how does that look?

This show explores the tension of Black women’s complicated existence in a social and political landscape that renders them “the mules of the world”; and how Black women’s reclamation of freedom and vulnerability offers a counterpoint to the status of mule and renders their humanity complete and whole.

O’ Freedom, My Beloved offers a glimpse of what it looks like for Black women to reclaim their time, their bodies, and their humanity and wholeness from the ravages of political and social oppression, not for others, but for ourselves.

The exhibit can be seen weekly Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The exhibit also can be viewed by appointment outside of normal business hours.
