About

Collector John Goodwin guest curates Upfor’s third anniversary exhibition. Briefly surveying changes in depiction of black culture in America over the last 100 years, the exhibition begins with abstract expressionist collage depicting economic strive in Goodwin’s home state of North Carolina, and extends to a young physician/photographer of Black/Korean descent who captures powerful and poignant images of today’s black culture. Goodwin includes work from his and Michael-Jay Robinson's collection in conversation with works selected for the occasion.
