Poster by Carla Cubit
The “Black Lives Matter Art Show,” inspired by the political movement, created by Occupy Art and featuring posters and art by Carla Cubit, as well as photographs by Cubit of protests that have taken place in the New York area, is on display today through September 4th at 266 W 37th St in Manhattan.
Cubit will perform at tonight’s grand opening, followed by a speech from the Stop Mass Incarceration Network and a discussion with the artist.
Cubit’s multimedia work uses found materials to create new images and stories. About her art, she’s said, “I love the arts in whatever medium it may be; music, theater, dance,etc; and I believe in religion, mysticism and the secret meaning of the unknown and art as a universal means of communication.”
During the opening reception and throughout the of the “Black Lives Matter Art Show,” necklaces, magnets, and key chains will be available for $1.
Occupy Art brings screenings, pop-up shows, and speakers to New York City, as well as organizes protest and rallies. They have called themselves “the 99%.”
Cubit resides in New York City, where she creates her small mixed media pieces.
