Hank Willis Thomas and Tabita Rezaire on group exhibition at Cairns Art Gallery in Sydney

Selling the Shadow, a group exhibition at Sydney’s Cairns Art Gallery, presents nine media works by contemporary African-American and African artists including Tabita Rezaire and Hank Willis Thomas (4 May – 1 July). The exhibition examines the relationship between art and social practice through video and features artists who explore themes of identity, history, and the social structures that play a role, not only in creating their own work but also in its consumption and the way in which it is activated.

Tabita Rezaire on film screening programme at Minneapolis Institute of Art

As part of its exhibition Mapping Black Identities, The Minneapolis Institute of Art screens recent video works (4 May – 8 September). Featuring work by Tabita Rezaire, the exhibition unapologetically confronts the legacy of systemic white supremacy by presenting conflicting realities. The films presented on the exhibition give voice to the experiences of black artists by providing differing worldviews that envision the transformative righting of past wrongs, and the pursuit of freedom in an unjust world.

Work by Tabita Rezaire features on various group exhibitions around the globe

Work by Tabita Rezaire is on Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance, Act 2, a group exhibition at De La Warr Pavilion in Sussex, United Kingdom (9 February – 31 December). Featuring over 50 artists, designers, architects and archives, the exhibition considers resistance from a gender perspective. Rezaire is also on Producing Futures – An Exhibition on Post-Cyber-Feminisms at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (16 February – 12 May). The exhibition surveys in the words of the museum ‘the causes championed by feminists in the post-internet era… to stimulate a more comprehensive discussion and generate ideas for a liveable future of emancipation, gender justice, and social equality’. Refiguring Boundaries, an exhibition at Pioneer Works (22 February – 21 April) similarly features Rezaire and other artists who are considering the intersection of identity, the body and the politics of technology.
