This solo exhibition features a recent and ongoing body of work by Theresa Newsome entitled Objects. The photographs reflect on the murder of unarmed black men in the United States, either by police brutality or unchecked racism. The objects depicted in this series portray the everyday objects that have become iconographic and in a sense played a pivotal role in the victims murders. In creating these images, Newsome frames how baffling it is that these objects were seemingly integral as reasoning for the violence that transpired. Through this body of work Newsome also confronts the ongoing fear Black women specifically live with of losing the boys and men in their lives. In the artist’s case it is a constant worry for her brother’s life, in addition to other loved ones and community members. Newsome questions how the worth of these objects and the alleged offenses of the victims, equate to the worth of a life.
