“Young Black Woman – Old White Man”

May 30 - July 13

Young Black Woman | Old White Man
Curated by James Burke

On View May 30 thru July 13

South Shore Art Center is excited to present Young Black Woman | Old White Man in our Bancroft Gallery from May 30 through July 13, 2024. Curated by James Burke, this exhibition will examine how race, gender, and age informs an individual’s worldview and creative response. The Art Center will host an opening reception on Thursday, May 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; admission is open to the public and free of charge.

The work featured in Young Black Woman | Old White Man is big and bold, but more importantly it speaks directly, and personally, to the ongoing racial crisis. The two featured artists – Devyn Casey and James Burke – represent the titular voices. The artists met virtually during the pandemic. Jim saw Devyn’s work posted on a friend’s Facebook page and was incredibly moved by it. He reached out and shared some of his own work. They have been friends ever since. Devyn and Jim both have a lot in common: big families, love for the arts, and similar senses of humor. But they are not the same color, and they have vastly different experiences on being American. They both have been painting about those experiences and thought it would be powerful to showcase their different experiences and viewpoints around global issues.
