Comprised of US-based artists descended from enslaved Africans, using photography, sound, projections, installation, and public programming, Reparations Realized invites artists to envision what 40 acres and a mule would look like, and how this country has fallen short on its debt– moving past the question of why and into the when.

NANO GALLERY

Nano Sculptures
A Series of Small Works in Bronze by John D. Antone

September 13th – November 17th

Opening Reception: Friday, September 13th, 7PM – 9PM
Closing Reception/Artist Talk: Sunday, November 17th, 5pm

Curated by Phillip Barlow

John D. Antone’s bronze sculptures are created with the ancient “lost wax” and “lost mold” casting techniques, wherein the original model or mold is destroyed in order to finish the piece. There is no room for mistakes in transforming Antone’s fragile models into bronze; failure means all the hours of his work on the model are lost. While classical bronze sculptures are normally solid, closed forms, Antone’s sculptures assemble “found” objects with his cerebral forms, paying particular attention to the effects of light and shadow.
