FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW ETERNAL BLACKNESS ART EXHIBIT EXPOSES TRUTH AND REVEALS “THE MYSTERY OF ETERNITY” THROUGH THE ILLUMINATING POWER OF BLACK ARTISTRY
Master oil painter, Khaldun Oluwa of Eternal Blackness Art, returns to rupture disillusioned minds and rouse consciousness in the art world with the announcement of his latest exhibit, “The Mystery of Eternity.” In his first exhibition of 2018, the artist will debut a new series of provocative artworks designed to force audiences to confront the truth of Black Power, the fallacy of white supremacy, and the hypocrisy of American mythology. “The Mystery of Eternity” will debut in an opening reception on July 7th, 2018 from 6PM – 10PM at Wadada, located at 878 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, Atlanta, GA in the historic West End community.
The self-curated, Khaldun Oluwa, exhibit includes all original works in their first public appearance. “The Mystery of Eternity” features portraits of social commentary dedicated to the revelation of “hidden truths” and an incendiary indictment of American injustice. Khaldun Oluwa states “the imagery in the exhibit will be the prevalence of Truth” and that “falsehood can only exist in fractions of a second in Eternity.” Audiences will also experience the collaborative force between Eternal Blackness Art and ZANDERLAND Productions with the premiere of “MASS Revelation,” a digital installation from the creative media production studio of artist and filmmaker, Zana Sanders. The artists, who began collaborating in 2016, are responsible for disrupting the Atlanta art scene and revolutionizing the exhibition experience through innovative and immersive design as witnessed with 2017s acclaimed “Eternal Illumination” and “MONOPOLIZED:” exhibits.
Through their individual mediums, the artists explore the dynamic cultural richness and heritage of the African Diaspora. Khaldun Oluwa describes the work as an extension of consciousness stating, “My art is subconscious activity entering conscious thought. I try to capture the abstract, faint, ever fleeting figments of my imagination and by using color, textures, and imagery I can articulate my perception. The intention of all my work is to stimulate the conscious levels of thought.” The media content from ZANDERLAND Productions exposes viewers to the experimental and avant garde style of artist and filmmaker, Zana Sanders. Sanders states, “the content of my work evolves around the creation and exploration of the Black aesthetic as found throughout the diaspora” and refers to the collaboration as providing “an intense juxtaposition” that “works collectively with Eternal Blackness Art in creating Black cultural production that addresses the multifaceted Black experience.”
In service to community, the collective works to counteract the negative impact of dehumanizing imagery of Black culture that is perpetuated in mainstream media. The artists view the exhibition as “a necessity manifested during a culturally significant moment in the United States and around the world…as WE resist against hegemonic control of mediated culture, resist against the exploitation of Black culture, and resist against the marginalization of Black bodies throughout the diaspora.”
