Damien Davis – COLLAPSE: Black Wall Street Study at Weeksville Heritage Center

Damien Davis’ (Workspace 2016-2017) practice explores historical representations of blackness by seeking to unpack the visual language of various cultures and question how these societies code/decode representations of race through craft, design and digital modes of production. His new art series ignites the conversation surrounding currency, community and the effects of hyper visibility for the black body.
