Can I Testify?
Curated by Gabriel Amadi-Emina
Featuring Redeat Assefa, Dyyo, Jerrell Gibbs, Lynn Hunter, and Will Watson
CAN I TESTIFY is a virtual narrative-based virtual exhibition that explores synergizing the reflections/testimonies of five DMV-based artists, to form one powerful narrative and dialogue. By reflecting on and sharing those moments that resonated with them personally, they explore how those stories have translated through both their practice, and as individuals, specifically in the DMV. But through the combination of their journeys, they show how dialogues can be manifested during times of separation.
