CONTRAST: DIVERGENT ENCOUNTERS WITH RACISM
This collaborative educational exhibition between Ophelia Chambliss and Matthew Apol is a visual representation of parallel experiences of race and racism across divergent perspectives of age and ethnicity. The function of the exhibition is to highlight, describe, and elaborate on the significant events regarding the differences and similarities in the ways that each artist has encountered and experienced racial tension over the course of their lives. Ophelia Chambliss is a female African American artist born in Chicago, Illinois. Matthew Apol is a male Caucasian American artist born in Michel, South Dakota. With nearly 25 years between them, different ethnicity and geographic location has led Chambliss and Apol through two very different experiences regarding discrimination. Contrast offers viewers the opportunity to compare these experiences side by side and in contrast to each other. To explore the perspective of two very different individuals while examining a very non-individual system of manipulation.

Also opening the same night in The Kerlin Gallery is The Art In Residence Companion Exhibit, a group exhibit showcasing a selection of artists featured in our recent “Art In Residence” fundraising gala event. For more information visit: https://creativeyork.org/gallery/
