Currents Uncut: The Vision Behind The “Great Force” Art Exhibit

Learn how the riveting exhibition “Great Force” came to fruition from Amber Esseiva, Assistant Curator of the Institute For Contemporary Art at VCU in Richmond. She describes how through various mediums of art this exhibition addresses the historical barriers that have been in place due to racism against blacks and the persistence of the color line in the United States.

She also talks about how the ICA is valuable to the community because it allows an exhibition like “Great Force” to start critical conversations around race relations.
