Join the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology and Myers School of Art for student Kwame Gomez’s senior exhibition, An Abyss of Sunshine.
An Abyss of Sunshine centers on the creation of Ancestral realms, figures, and mythical universes in futuristic setting; and explores ceremony and how it is a culmination of reaction, intensity, sensation, and time. Through the language of collage and mixed media, spaces are created where the Black-figure and viewer can simply rest and exist in our own autonomy. These ceremonial realms highlight the sacred connections between nature and blackness.
