Jeremy Biggers exhibition
opens this Saturday, Nov. 20th

Opening Reception, Saturday from 7 – 10pm
 “All Things Considered” is an exhibition featuring paintings and drawings by South Dallas native multi-hyphenate artist Jeremy Biggers and includes works from his “Unspoken Burdens” series from earlier this year, as well as brand new never before shown works. “Unspoken Burdens” is a body of work that broaches the conversation around Black male identity and social constructs. This collection of works was birthed by a lack of spaces for Black men to be 100% vulnerable. It speaks to the human experience of dealing with self-esteem issues and other insecurities and general stresses life can throw at us, while also navigating through a world that routinely perpetuates “anti-Blackness” is something that is exclusive to the Black male experience. Coupled with these works “All Things Considered” features a new untitled body of work that features Black people simply “existing”. Black artists are often pressured to make work that deals with Black trauma, or work dealing with social issues. Rarely is there work that features Black people just “existing”.  “All Things Considered” will run from November 20 until December 12. The opening reception is November 20th from 7p-10p.
