Through Saturday, February 22, 2014:
A selection of works from Edham the Atheist is included in The Wayland Rudd Collection, a collaborative project and traveling exhibition organized by Yevgeniy Fiks (premiering at Winkleman Gallery, NY, January 17-February 22, 2014) that focuses on the representation of Africans and African-Americans in Soviet visual culture. A point of departure for this project is Fiks’ collection of over 200 Soviet images (paintings, movie stills, posters, graphics, etc.) of Africans and African-Americans spanning from the 1920s to the 1980s. This exhibition will travel to First Floor Gallery Harare in Harare, Zimbabwe in Summer of 2014. A book will be produced in conjunction with this project.
