Experience ‘radical pleasure’ on April 1
Radical Pleasure, an exhibition pairing literary and visual art, will be on display April 1 – June 30, 2022, at the Spady Museum. In the show, 10 artists collaborate in a reciprocal ekphrastic (a vivid, often dramatic, verbal description of a visual work of art) exhibition, challenging and championing our collective and personal relationships to pleasure.
The artists were anonymously paired, one visual and one literary, to create original work exploring what it means to make intentional, unflinching commitments to rest, joy, self-actualization, and freedom. The resulting work invites viewers and readers to consider individual and communal practices that embody and encourage radical pleasure – pleasure that disrupts the status quo, reclaims identity, and attempts to dismantle capitalism, racism, and the myriad of oppressive systems that seek to destroy Black women individually and collectively.
Radical Pleasure opens in April, in recognition and celebration of National Poetry Month. All works presented are new and original, created in response to honoring the importance of experiencing pleasure for yourself and advocating for others to do the same.
