Clover’s Fine Art Gallery is proud to present Guerrillas in the Midst, the infamous artist group who has reunited and is preparing to surround your senses at Clover’s Fine Art Gallery on Friday September 26th, 2014.
Opening Reception will be held on Friday, September 26th 6-9pm at Clover's Fine Art Gallery located in downtown Brooklyn - 338 Atlantic Avenue (Hoyt & Smith). There will be an Artist Talk on Friday, October 24th, 6-7:30pm.
In 1998, as a reaction to the marginalization of artists from Caribbean and African-American communities, ten artists living primarily in Fort Greene and Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn formed a group called “Rogues Gallery,” later renaming themselves “Guerrillas in the Midst”. They found that despite having been educated and trained in notable bastions of art and education, only a limited number of galleries were interested in showing their work. Finding just cause for action, they drew up a manifesto calling for a rebellion against the echelons of high art and it’s officiators, and created “Guerrillas in the Midst,” a series of “strikes” in the form of art exhibitions in unconventional spaces that were produced to critical acclaim.
And so it is in that spirit and to reignite that rebel yell that Clover’s Fine Art Gallery will present new work from the group in Guerrillas in the Midst Remix with six of the original artists - Terry Boddie, Constant, Francks Deceus, Jean Patrick Icart-Pierre, Jamal Ince, Laura James, and four new members Patrick Dougher, Lady K Fever, Tiffany Miller, and Sol Sax.
ELIGO ART (Laura James and Edna Suarez) and Jamal Ince are the Guest Curators for this exhibition.
