~> For his solo exhibition entitled, "Street Memorials", at Medicine Wheel Productions’ Spoke Gallery, Cedric Douglas is debuting new work as well as showing his recent installations and projects. For this show, he is taking a national contemporary view of the killing of black people in our country. The new work is taking a hard look at racial injustice and its deadly impact on the black community, while his recent work is memorializing those from the black community who have been killed by police. These recent works that address the police’s use of deadly force are not trying to make judgments- but instead, are trying to bring to the surface “that everyone deserves a fair trial and every life has value.” His show also raises bigger questions: How as a community and as fellow Americans can we work to end the use of deadly force by police? How do we all come together to stop white supremacists and institutional racism? How as a nation do we work to ensure that everyone has a fair trial? And how do we learn to see those we label as “others” as our neighbors and members of our communities?
