FLOWERS by Stas Ginzburg

flowers_vpa-event-page-.png

August 31, 2022 - November 11, 2022

August 31 | Opening Reception @ 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.

September 28 | Artist Talk @ 3:00 p.m.  

Stas Ginzburg is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. In 1999, Ginzburg immigrated to the U.S. from Russia as a Jewish refugee. In 2006, he graduated from Parsons School of Design, NYC where he studied photography. Since then he has expanded his practice to sculpture, installation and performance art. When the protests for racial justice ignited at the end of May 2020, Ginzburg returned to photography to document the many faces of young activists who came out into the streets to fight for Black liberation.

Youth is leading the revolution. Since the murder of George Floyd, the resurgence of street activism from Black Lives Matter to Stop Asian Hate, Free Palestine and advocacy for trans, immigrant and sex workers rights has filled the streets of New York City. Black queer and Black trans voices have come to the forefront of the fight. Their photographs make up most of this portfolio–portraits of people I have met at marches and rallies as well as actions that center and uplift marginalized communities. I started thinking of these young activists as flowers, full of beauty and life at the dawn of a new era.” -Stas Ginzburg

Ginzburg’s work has been shown in venues across the United States including: Queens Museum, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Honolulu Museum of Art, National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, and LA Center for Digital Art, among others. His works are inthe collections of Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma, Fort Wayne Museum of Art and Kunstwerk Museum in Eberdingen, Germany. Ginzburg has shown his performances at Humboldt University in Berlin and Weltkunstzimmer in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Kaleidoscope: My Culture, My Pride Dionne H.E. Polite

polite-dionne-publicity-june-14_vpa-event-page.png

December 1, 2022 - January 20, 2023

December 1, 2022 | Artist Reception @ 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

January 18, 2023 | Artist Talk @ 3:00 p.m.  

Polite is a self-taught artist who originally hails from Guyana. Shortly after immigrating to the United States in her early childhood, she discontinued many creative pursuits to concentrate on the responsibilities of being the oldest child, especially daughter, within her family. She returned to making paintings again as an adult a few years ago; at first, to connect with her aging parents, and then later, to help grieve through both of their deaths, which happened within the same year. Her artwork often showcases her diverse and eclectic family, culture, and history, especially poignant experiences from her early childhood in Guyana to more recent imagery from her current daily life here in South Florida. Through paint, she tells her story in her way.

“I am a self-taught artist who sees myself as a dynamic, ever-evolving, layered being, navigating through life while seeing and being in full color. Therefore, with the amazing love and support of my family and friends, I am energized and determined to explore, create, and display the kaleidoscope of my life through my art." -Polite
