> DESCRIPTION

Solo exhibition by African American artist Mark Steven Greenfield, who is both fascinated and repelled by images of Blackface Minstrelsy, the predominant form of American stage entertainment for almost a hundred years. Greenfield appropriates the images of white entertainers in blackface, strips them from their original context, in some instances superimposing text, to create works that are contemporary in aesthetic and provocative in content.
