The Re-Education by C. Harvey


The Re-Education is an exhibition featuring mixed media and sculptural works, photography, and text in an introspective analysis of the internal and external forces that have helped condition the gifted black mind. Exploring the emotional and psychological factors that cause and enforce the poverty mindset, the collection presents a new perspective on the narrative of institutional, social, societal, economic, and generational pathology that lend a hand in perpetuating the misunderstanding and exploitation of the 21st century black in America.

Through the visual language of The Re-Education, C. Harvey intends to break down the barriers of verbal communication between the privileged and the ghetto intellectual; the college educated and the street scholars — a timeline in graphic detail, mapping the mis-education and re-education of America’s brown boys and girls.

The Re-Education was at featured installation at School 33 Art Center from 11/11/2016 to 1/21/2017 curated by Melissa Webb. The installation is a semi-finalist for the 2017-2018 Sondheim award. C. Harvey is the first Generation of Dreamers sponsored artist.
