Unapologetically Black, Latina, feminist, queer. Unapologetically conscious.
The exhibition Unapologetic explores race, gender and activism. Artists Rabéa Ballin, Ann Johnson, Lauren Kelley, Rosine Kouamen, Delita Martin and Lovie Olivia are artists who have consistently created works that challenge perceptions, history and artistic discourse. These artists make no apologies for exploring explosive social issues in their work or simply mastering the fine art of drawing. They are confident about who they are as artists and the works they produce.
This exhibition is in conjunction with a series of exhibitions dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Community Artists’ Collective. Since 1987 The Collective has co-created opportunities for various aspects of professional development especially for emerging and mid-career artists through its exhibitions, education and entrepreneurship and community development programs. The Collective has been an integral part of the Houston arts landscape, particularly as it relates to women of color.
