Miami Arts, Culture & Heritage Months

This event is taking place during Miami Arts, Culture & Heritage Months. Click here to learn more about this Miami Temptations Program.

For Those Gathered in the Wind will open at LnS Gallery will showcase the most recent body of work by T. Eliott Mansa as curated by Donnamarie Baptiste. The much-anticipated solo exhibition of T. Eliott Mansa, a Miami-based assemblage artist, will provide both a visually striking and emotionally touching experience to showcase his latest series of amuletic wall-mounted sculptors that capture ritual practices to honor, memorialize, protect, and defend Black Lives from state and extra-judicial violence. Throughout his work Mansa enriches a visual culture that serves these functions by using techniques within each assemblage that transcend bounds of geography, holding Caribbean and African roots. Mansa dedicates his practice to amplify this narrative. A graduate of New World School of the Arts High School, Mansa received a Thalheimer Scholarship to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art, received his BFA from the University of Florida, MFA from CUNY-Hunter College and attended Yale School of Art. Mansa received the 2019 Creator Award from Oolite Arts.

For Those Gathered in the Wind will be open to groups of ten or less, regulated using timeslots to allow visitors in and out of the space. An accompanying catalogue will be for sale throughout the show. All proceeds will be donated to the Miami Museum of Contemporary Art of the African Diaspora (Miami MoCAAD).
