Paradigm Gallery will host “Night Stars”, a solo exhibition of new photographic work by interdisciplinary artist Shawn Theodore from Feb. 26 to March 20 at 746 S. 4th Street.
Night Stars is an expansion of Theodore’s investigation into a space he calls ‘Afromythology’, which unites the real and imaginary histories and futures of African Americans. In Night Stars, Theodore widens this space by melding together the traditions of African indigo making and the magical powers of water and stars. The evocative exhibition illuminates the space where they all converge, a body of work that is a deep, deep blue. Night Stars marks the first exhibition at Paradigm with the artist. An opening event will be held on Feb. 26 at 5:30 p.m.
Due to COVID-19, “Night Stars” will be open for regular weekend hours with limited capacity and is available to view by private appointments during the week until further notice. The digital exhibition twin is available on https://www.paradigmarts.org/ for viewing from home.
