After hearing about the grand jury’s decision to not indict Daniel Pantaleo, Smack Mellon has postponed a planned exhibition* in order to respond to the continued failure of the United States to protect its black citizens from police discrimination and violence. In order to channel our outrage into actions that can facilitate systemic change, Smack Mellon’s gallery space will be used to present events, performances and artworks that address the institutional racism that allows for the police to murder black members of the community. Eastman will be included in this group show.
For a full list of artists and information about events during this show visit www.smackmellon.org. Smack Mellon is at 92 Plymouth St, Brooklyn.
Exhibition Dates: January 17- February 22, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 17, 5 to 8pm
Closing Reception: February 22 at 4pm
