Join us for a virtual tour as artist Esmaa Mohamoud and curator Matthew Kyba present the works in To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat. This exhibition is on at the AGH until August 15, 2021.
Taking inspiration from the African American writer Ralph Ellison, artist Esmaa Mohamoud explores the ways in which Black bodies at once appear―and yet are rendered metaphorically invisible―within the spaces they navigate. To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat aims to re-examine understandings of contemporary Blackness, questioning the definitions of Blackness as a colour and shade, and/or as a societal or cultural construction.
Curated by Matthew Kyba, Curator of Exhibitions at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat is organized and circulated by Museum London.
