Exhibition: "Dress Up, Speak Up: Costume and Confrontation" with Jamaica's Ebony G. Patterson among twenty-five artists - show runs through June 2017 at the 21c Museum Hotel — Lexington, KY USA; Event Details: The 21c Museum Hotel is located at 167 West Main Street, Lexington, KY 40507, Phone: 859.899.6800
Event Description: “Bedecked and bejeweled, the figures populating 'Dress Up, Speak Up' occupy fluid space and time, evoking past and present, fact and fiction, memory and desire, to illuminate the complexity of contemporary identity. Whether clad in the stylized garb of Enlightenment-era Europe, the traditional coverings of ancient religious tradition, or the gender-bending bling of popular culture, these representations of self and other role-play in real time, reaching back through history to address prevailing personal, social, and political challenges. From Ebony G. Patterson’s families, dancers, gangstas, and deceased, to the philosophers, dandies, and faerie conjured by Yinka Shonibare M.B.E., to portraits derived from allegory, autobiography, and the art canon by Titus Kaphar, Berni Searle, Nathalia Edenmont, Fahamu Pecou, and others, this pantheon of provocative and prophetic personages are costumed to enact and confront the legacy of embedded experience ...” — Read more: 21c Museum Hotel-Dress Up, Speak Up

The bold decision to open a contemporary art museum accessible to the public free of charge and to combine it with Louisville’s first boutique hotel would create both an economic driver for the community and an oasis where art challenges, amuses, stimulates conversation, and provokes new ideas ...”Visit our website: 21c Museum Hotel and 21c Museum Hotel-About

Event Description: “On Thursday, June 22nd at 8 p.m., the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas will present Black Narcissus, the story of a group of nuns who struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas. Temptation comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, but never has it been illustrated so dramatically as was the case with this 1947 Oscar winning film.
