On. Jan. 21, TAG Gallery opened two new exhibitions, “Blackstract” and “Heritage,” which will be on view through Saturday, Feb. 15.
“Blackstract,” an exhibition curated by gallery manager Rakeem Cunningham, features work by Deitra Charles, Patrice Fisher, Andrew Gray, Hasef, David Leggett, Haleigh Nickerson and Brittney Leeanne Williams.
The exhibition aims to celebrate the accomplishments of black abstract artists and combat the false equivalency that work by African Americans must be politically charged.
“Heritage” is an all-member showcase reflecting TAG artists’ personal, cultural, historic and artistic beginnings.
“‘Heritage’ is an opportunity for our TAG artists to share who they are with the community,” gallery president K Ryan Henisey said.
Subjects within the show reflect on Jewish and Persian history, LGBTQ mythology, California place-making and more, resulting in a creatively quilted exhibition that echoes the multiplicity of Los Angeles.
An opening reception will be held for the exhibitions from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25. Admission to the gallery is free. Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
TAG Gallery is located at 5458 Wilshire Blvd. For information, call (310)829-9556, or visit taggallery.net.
