The long-running mural “Laocoön and the Algorithm” by at will be painted over this week. In commemoration, the artist is releasing a 16” x 20” archival edition of the mural on Friday, 9/23 at 8AM.
The run will be Limited to 50 and presented on Hahnemühle acid-free, archival cotton Photo Rag Giclée paper.

⚡️Visit Taylor’s website or her IG for more info.⚡️

About the work:
In Virgil’s Aeneid, Laocoön was a priest of Poseidon who attempted to expose the ruse of the Trojan horse by striking it with a spear. Metaphorically, of course, the phrase “Trojan horse” has come to mean any trick or stratagem that causes a target to willingly and unknowingly invite a foe into a protected place.
Today, we live in a world where every move we make online is tracked. Using a barrage of loud and audacious images disguised as entertainment, we cavalierly accept the terms and conditions of our devices as they command more and more of our psychological and emotional freedom in exchange for the illusion of safety and purpose.

From :
Kennedi Carter made headlines in 2020 when, at 21, she became the youngest photographer to shoot the cover of – with no less than as her subject. For the Durham, North Carolina native, who is originally from Dallas, Texas, the historic shoot was an ideal convergence of everything she loves. Inspired by photographers Gordon Parks, Deana Lawson, and Carrie Mae Weems as well as painters spanning Titus Kaphar, Frida Kahlo, and Artemisia Gentileschi, Carter aspires to create timeless works that echo the glory of the American South she calls home.
Carter is committed to showcasing the profound beauty and depth of Black life, exploring the aesthetic, political, and cultural nuances of the people with love and affection to reimagine notions of creativity and confidence.

The intricate level of detail in ‘s exhibition is jaw-dropping. From tiny, porcelain doll hands, to blown glass beads, semi-precious stones from Africa, bullet casings, and even segments of vintage beaded coin purses….all gathered by artist Lakea Shepard to form wearable sculptures in her exhibition “Malik: Sovereign of Faith”, on view now at .

Don’t sleep on her wall texts either! This artist’s poetry is like her sculptures: moving and passionate with a level of quiet intensity. 💥

This is the last, full weekend to see this exhibition! The final day will be Friday, September 16 (open til 5PM).

We were blown away yesterday by the debut of “Spill”, a stunning interpretive mural by and .coachman which was inspired by ’s original artwork.

Did you know that got its name from the coal-burning trains that would deposit smoke into the neighborhood? Thus creating a literal “smoky hollow”. The communities that lived there in its beginnings in the 1800s were primarily African Americans, who were the builders and railroad workers of our great city. Kids in the Smoky Hollow would often play in the train trestles and the Pigeon House Branch creek, which is now mostly buried.

This history, of African American residents and the water flowing in the creek, made ‘s work a perfect fit. Freelon has said that her work celebrates “the communal aspect…the ancestral heritage, the connection to quilt-making in my family and the African American tradition of making a way out of now way.” ( Sept ‘20)

Check it out this inspiring artwork on your way downtown! It’s located on the side of the Peace Raleigh Apartment parking deck at 417 W. Peace St. facing .

MEET THE PANELISTS | We are excited to hear from sculptors Lakea Shepard and Stephen L. Hayes on Sunday at Black Representation in the Arts! Until then, we would love to tell you a bit more about these incredible artists!

Lakea Shepard was awarded a residency at the New York Studio Residency Program in DUMBO, NY in 2012. In 2013, she graduated from The Crafts Department at The College for Creative Studies, Detroit, MI, where she was the only African- American woman in the department. Shepard developed her passion for making textile/mixed media sculptures by watching her parents work as a mechanic and textile production worker. She is inspired by materials and how they can be manipulated to convey emotions. Her first solo museum exhibition Malik: Sovereign of Faith opened at CAM Raleigh in 2021, where it’s currently on view until September 16, 2022.

Stephen L. Hayes Jr. earned a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. His thesis exhibition, "Cash Crop," has been traveling and exhibiting for nearly a decade. In his work, Hayes uses three symbols: a pawn, a corn, and a horse to explore America’s use (or misuse) of black bodies, black minds, and black labor. Artists, he believes, are as much translators as they are creators. He started teaching at the college level in 2011; currently, he is an associate professor of sculpture at Duke University. He is the 2020 winner of the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art, at the Gibbs museum.

MEET THE PANELISTS | The artists and creatives joining Black Representation in the Arts, our panel on Sunday, Aug. 7, are a dream. Next up in our round of intimate introductions, we have and !

Allen Mask is an independent American songwriter, producer and recording artist. Mask, an often described 'undercover creative' with a refreshingly unique sound, is most celebrated for his work outside of music, particularly as an entrepreneur and senior executive. Mask, a North Carolina native, studied Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with minors in jazz studies and artistic entrepreneurship. Mask spends most of his time investing in technology startups, but can always be found in or near the control room where he and his team are finishing their fourth studio album.

Clarence Heyward, whose work is currently on view at CAM Raleigh in his first solo museum exhibition UNSEEN, is a painter and collagist whose work explores notions of the Black American experience. Beginning his journey as a full-time artist in 2019, Heyward is best known for his dynamic and fresh take on figurative art. His work investigates cultural truths, challenges stereotypes, and questions identity. He believes it’s important to “paint his truth” and uses persons of color as subjects in his work as homage to his culture.

The optic nerve receives and transmits visual information. This we know, 🙄 , as we use our eyes to see; however, the precise point at which the optic nerve exits the optic disc lacks photoreceptor cells, meaning there’s a blind spot as we are aiming to see. So, the very act of seeing entails a kind of blindness, meaning our attempts to see are inevitably bound up with our failure to see. 🫣🤔

If this has you wanting to know more, come to Scott Hazard’s artist talk tomorrow, Saturday, July 30 at 2PM here at .
