Chelle Barbour’s You Is Pretty! at Band of Vices Art Gallery

Band of Vices Art Gallery is thrilled to announce You Is Pretty!, the first solo exhibition of Chelle Barbour. Oscar-nominated actress Angela Bassett is pleased to serve as guest curator for Ms. Barbour’s premiere solo exhibition. You Is Pretty! will feature nearly two dozen photographic collages of black women, sourced from magazines and books, and re-assembled as almost mythical beings that transcend the devalued representations historically broadcast in our culture and media. “Chelle Barbour has the rare artistic gift of being able to elevate a people, in this case the black woman, to heights of majesty and complexity that are so often overlooked in our everyday lives,” says Bassett.


You Is Pretty! will be on view from September 15 to October 13, 2018 with an Opening Reception on September 15 from 6pm to 10pm. Barbour will hold an Artist Talk at the gallery on October 6, 2018 at 4pm.
