Start Date: May 25, 2023

THURSDAY, MAY 25, 2023 at 5:30 pm.

Join us for an evening gallery talk with Good Hart Artist Resident Elgin Cleckley.
In this talk Elgin Cleckley will outline his journey to developing Brookes (Revisited), an installation/exhibition that accurately humanizes the iconic drawing Stowage of the British Slave Ship Brookes under the Regulated Slave Trade Act of 1788 through models, drawings, and interactives.
Cleckley, an architect, designer, educator and visual artist will detail how the work melds art, architecture, history and storytelling, incorporating three decades of research and compiled data.

Artist Statement:
“While at Good Hart, I will continue developing an installation/exhibition that accurately and empathically visualizes elements of the Middle Passage, making new connections to today’s urgent realities of over-surveillance, incarceration, migration, and racial justice. The work melds art, architecture, history, and storytelling, incorporating three decades of research and compiled data. The result is transformative in that it leaves space for viewers of all backgrounds to consider, imagine, and discuss the reality of the Middle Passage, critically analyzing the visuals used in 1788. The work will exhibit in national and global locations beginning in 2024.”

Enjoy refreshments and light fare after the gallery talk.

Located at Charlevoix Circle of Arts.
FREE to attend. Limited seats available.
