Clyde Ellington Grant II will display an exhibit on January 15th at the Tipping Point, entitled Living Object, which will be curated by Chanelle Frazier. The concept of the art will touch on Clyde's interpretation of society's negative views of women, personal view of women, female self-image & patriarchy. These subjects feed into the belief that women are often objectified, creating the name of the show. Living Object presents the idea that the society we live in affects how women are treated & viewed by others, which in turn can affect female self-image. The pieces displayed will be social commentary, & artwork that can be appreciated for its aesthetics.
The woman in this photograph is actually a ex-girlfriend of mine. To use an image of her reflects not of my personal opinion of her, but how society views her. And every female. Your mother. Your grandmother. Your sister. Your girlfriend. Your cousin. Your niece. Your aunt. Your wife. Your daughter.
Living Object currently has limited sponsorship. The amount I’m requesting to assist with my exhibit would be $150.00 USD, to help cover printing/framing costs. Printing/Framing is an integral part of my exhibit, & would help immensely in the task of allowing the work to be seen, as well as how the message within my artwork will be conveyed. All extra funds will be used for advertising, creating extra prints for personal archives as well as for those who helped support the show & small extra programming dealing with the exhibit such as lectures & additional reading materials. Living Object will be the first photography exhibit The Tipping Point has had since its inception, &a my first solo residency. I appreciate that The Tipping Point has selected me for such an opportunity, & would hate for it to not come to fruition. I believe although the show is in a smaller scale gallery, it should be treated with the same enthusiasm and care as an exhibit in the most well known galleries. Your contribution will help my dream become a reality, & shed light on an ugly darkness that has dwelled within society since its beginning.
