Marantz Moon: 1000 Afros Loitering 4 Beauty
4606 W Washington Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90016
Saturday, June 8 at 3:00 PM 7:00 PM
Ends Jul 13, 2024
DMST Atelier reopens in a new location in Mid-City Los Angeles (4606 Washington Blvd.) with a solo exhibition by artist and co-founder of DMST Atelier, Marantz Moon. The 18 pieces by Moon in “1000 Afros Loitering 4 Beauty” represent a body of work at the intersection of function, the utilitarian and an aesthetic informed by the beauty of daily life in a broad spectrum of the black community. The iconic image of the afro, whether replicated throughout the exhibition as a silhouette, by its implied presence (as in the form of an afro pick), or in actual figurative form, serves as a pointer, directing the viewer to experience the afro uniquely in the context of each new setting, within each new work, as a symbol of both black beauty and black power.
