Myrtis Bedolla Curates “Renaissance: Noir” for UTA Artist Space

By Lola Desmole

June 10, 2020

This week, UTA Artist Space in Beverly Hills launched the online exhibition “Renaissance: Noir.” Curated by Myrtis Bedolla of Galerie Myrtis, it features the work of Tawny Chatmon, Wesley Clark, Alfred Conteh, Larry Cook, Morel Doucet, Monica Ikegwu, Ronald Jackson, M. Scott Johnson, Delita Martin, Arvie Smith, Nelson Stevens, and Felandus Thames.

The works in “Renaissance: Noir” present Black artists’ narratives, and address issues like racism, colorism, sexism, capitalism, colonialism, escapism, and criticism through the act of artistic activism.

“’Renaissance: Noir’ is more poignant than ever as we share these thought-provoking works which depict the social, political, and historical journey of the Black experience through intergenerational narratives,” said Bedolla in a statement. “I am excited to be partnering with UTA Artist Space on such a timely collection of paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and conceptual works, which span over 40 years of artistic production.”

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of works in the show will go to Artist Relief, a coalition of national art grant-makers that have come together to support artists during this time. The online exhibition is live on the UTA Artist Space website until July 3.
