Stephen Towns: Rumination and a Reckoning and Ramsess: The Gathering at Art + Practice from Sat, Oct 12, 2019 to Sat, Jan 25, 2020 ( Exhibition )

Stephen Towns's installation Birth of a Nation (2014) is at the center of the exhibition, representing a Black woman nursing a white infant against the backdrop of the first official flag of the United States.

Ramsess’s mural-scale quilt The Gathering (2012) reimagines Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper (1495-98) as a memorial to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old who was shot and killed on February 26, 2012. Both are curated by Cecilia Wichmann, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at The BMA.
