Blaxploitation Considered Anew In Exhibition at Poster House New York: Forbes

“We’re Going to End Slavery. Join Us!” at Cristin Tierney Gallery through December 18 is the first presentation of this project in a U.S. gallery. The exhibition features large-scale performance stills from the 2019 performance alongside flags that were designed and created for the reenactment. The flag designs—imagined versions of what the enslaved people might have carried—showcase Creole language and iconography from various African traditions that could have been familiar to some of the rebels.
