Founding members of the Austin based Black Mountain Project Adrian Aguilera, Betelhem Makonnen, and Tammie Rubin will debut a new body of work in sculpture, photography, text, and video, at the George Washington Carver Museum, Cultural and Genealogy Center from March 7, 2019 – July 27, 2019.  This collaborative exhibition, constant escape, provides a sensory prescription for resisting absolute definitions of culture and identity. The concept for this exhibition is inspired by text from Fred Moten’s, Black and Blur (Duke University Press, 2017)

Constant escape is uneasy. It demands the blinking intermittence, the radical flight, of a certain experience of constraint that will have been best understood as sustained, unflinching fantasy, as a look through or away, listening to and playing over, under. Perhaps constant escape is that which is what we mean when we say freedom.

Employing a variety of mediums, each artist has a distinctive process and approach to their creative practice. And yet, they share a commitment to making work that is not easily labelled, asks us to question our environments, and reflect on how we see ourselves in the world.
