Human.Male.Black.: Acrylic Paintings
Lyle Rushing’s pieces are a study of the intersectional nature of the human experience, topical events and living while black. The exhibition entitled “Human. Male. Black.” celebrates the universality of the human experience while also investigating the ways in which black men are regarded while navigating through everyday life and emotions. Rushing aims to celebrate and uplift the black experience, while also giving visibility to the emotions often overlooked and not associated with masculinity at large and black male masculinity in particular.
