Overview:

Art that explores a shared vision for social justice

 

“Liberty and justice for all.” These are the closing words of America’s Pledge of Allegiance, but we have fallen woefully short of this promise. Words and actions have failed us, but artists step into this gap by investigating themes and imagery that inspire the path forward as well as depicting the errors of the past. As a nation, we must eliminate racism in all its forms. Art is the universal language and artists articulate a shared vision for social justice.  The exhibit will be curated by gallerist Karen Jenkins-Johnson, with works selected by invitation and via a national juried process.

Karen Jenkins-Johnson established her eponymous gallery in 1996 in San Francisco, having moved to the SF Bay Area to earn her MBA at UC Berkeley. She opened a second gallery and community project space in New York in 2005. She is a dealer of contemporary art, representing international artists working across disciplines. Karen Jenkins Johnson was featured in The New York Times Style Magazine as part of a small but influential group of black gallerists correcting history, and was interviewed on art world diversity by AIPADexposure. She is a Museum of the African Diaspora advisor, and in 2018, was named the MoADSF Patron of the Arts.
