Art Code Collective kicks off its efforts to showcase established and emerging artists of color, who push the envelope of socially conscious art, with debut art show Iconic Originals on Feb. 4, from 5-8 p.m. at Cielo Galleries in South Central Los Angeles.
The collective’s first showing, curated by Misha Liann, will include works by emerging black artists Masu Engeé McLemore, LP Ǽkili Ross, Donovan Vim Crony and Tiffanie Renae. The pieces featured will range from traditional paintings and drawings to multimedia and interactive installations, which the artists identify as their personal best. The short films Noise Gate and Xara by Donovan Vim Crony and Be Art by LP Ǽkili Ross will also be available to preview during the event.
A collaboration between creative, socially conscious minds, Art Code Collective strives to uplift, empower and expose artists of color, while raising awareness about important social issues facing the world, through ongoing events and initiatives.
