Damon Davis at the UO!
April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Damon Davis on the University of Oregon campus (Global Scholars Hall Great Room 123) on Thursday 4/12 at 7pm. Davis is an award-winning interdisciplinary artist who works across an array of creative mediums – illustration, painting, printmaking, music, film, and public art – to tell stories that combat systemic oppression. He has work featured in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, and he has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts in Brooklyn and the San Diego Contemporary Museum of Art.Whose Streets?, a documentary co-directed by Davis, premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was roundly praised by critics (Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” and Independent Magazine’s “10 Filmmakers to Watch”). Davis exposes audiences to inside perspectives on a range of social justice issues and current events topics, including the complexities of race and class in society and the historical context in which it should be understood.
We’re so excited to share Davis’ amazing work and hope that you can share information about our Thursday 4/12 7pm event with your membership. If you are interested in more information and/or in speaking about the work that the NAACP is currently doing in Eugene either before or after the event, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
