Rico Gatson & Baseera Khan: FREE TO BE

Jenkins Johnson Gallery
207 Ocean Avenue
Brooklyn, NY

April 26 – June 15, 2019

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 27th, 5-8 pm

“Free to Be” takes its inspiration from “Free to be You and Me,” a pioneering children’s program from the 1970’s, whose episodic nature challenged traditional gender designations and promoted multiple views of equality. Artist Rico Gatson and Baseera Khan, draw upon their own personal history, family, politics and spirituality. Selected works are placed in dialogue sharing material and imagistic experiences of respect and friendship along side expansive notions of power dynamics, openness and freedom.
