De Nue is an exhibition featuring emerging BLACK artists from the SAIC community, organized and curated by Da’Niro Elle Brown (BFA 2017), Janelle Miller (BFA 2017), and Brianna McIntyre (BFA 2017). Participating artists were chosen by a jury including the organizers and Faheem Majeed (artist), Aymar Jean Christian (OPENTV), Felicia Mings (AIC), and Erica Ross (ARC Gallery, MAE SAIC). Filling the LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery, Gallery X and the display cases of the Flaxman Library and the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, this exhibition is a confrontation, challenging SAIC and the public to complicate its ideas of Blackness and what it means to make BLACK art.
Exhibiting artists include; Patrice Barnes (BFA 2017), Da’Niro Elle Brown (BFA 2017), Intunu Ebijimi (BFA 2018), Darren Edwards (BFA 2019), André Fuqua (Bacc 2016), Jesus Hilario-Reyes (BFA 2019), Shala Miller (BFA 2017), Tiana Mincey (BFA 2016), Amina Ross (BFA 2015), and Derrick Wood-Morrow (MFA 2016).
