About This Event
Visit the exhibition, Preach! New Works by Jeffrey Kent curated by the Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS) at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in which Kent presents a body of work aimed to criticize what he sees as some of the opinions maintained within the black Christian community on marriage equality for same-sex couples. Using painting, collage, sculpture and mixed-media installation, Kent explores current political events through racially charged imagery. In Preach!, Kent draws parallels between the Civil Rights Movement and the fight for marriage equality in the United States by exploring imagery of racial prejudice.
