Exhibition Guide

Four Sites of Return presents Nikesha Breeze’s continued research into personal, social, environmental and spiritual wound. Working from an Afrofuturist and Afrocentric lens, the artist creates ritual spaces and ancestral artifacts as an act of reclamation for Black, Indigenous, Queer and Earth bodies.  

 The titular sites—Ritual, Remembrance, Reparation and Reclamation—are embodied in the show through oil paintings, charcoal drawings, sculpture, site-specific installation and conceptual performance interventions. The sites communicate with and through each other to form a sacrosanct environment that is centered on the value, recognition, beauty and power of the Black body.
