Pelican Bomb opens a new exhibition featuring eight up-and-coming artists who address the concept of female celebrity.
Join us for an opening reception at Pelican Bomb Gallery X for “2 Freaky 2 Friday,” a group exhibition centered around contemporary conceptions of female celebrity. We’ll be celebrating in conjunction with the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard Merchants & Business Association’s First Friday on the Boulevard.
The exhibition examines the ways women’s public images are created, presented, and consumed. It is particularly interested in the shifts linked to the digital proliferation and manipulation of images in the late 1990s, when the Internet went from a little-used resource to a household utility. Artists include Hannah Black, Sara Clugage, Raque Ford, Faith Holland, E. Jane, Jennifer Mills, Tameka Norris, and Brice Peterson.
