David-Jeremiah: Early Career Survey
Friday, Jul. 8, 2022 – Saturday, Sep. 10, 2022
About the event
David-Jeremiah is an emerging artist based in Dallas who has mounted nine solo exhibitions over the last four years. His solo exhibitions have included shows at galleries in Texas, New York, and Washington D.C. This exhibition will feature work by the artist spanning 2019 to 2022.
Of his own artistic practice, David-Jeremiah has said, “It was during my ‘Staycation’ (the artist spent four years in prison) that I became a conceptual artist, because the physical was very limited, and the material was very limited, so I had to internalize and flesh out concepts. When I came out, I had composition notebooks full of bodies of work, and that’s why I have been able to execute the work versus experimenting and contemplating.”
This is the first show curated by the organization’s new Chief Curator, Christopher Blay. Mr. Blay stated, “I have followed David-Jeremiah’s work since before the beginning of his studio practice, when he was a performance artist. It is from the same visceral force and urgency that his paintings and sculptures are born. Thoughtful, instinctive, and absorbing of the entire light spectrum of the human experience to break down, if conceptually, what it sometimes means to be Black in America.”
