Reclamation by Zsudayka Nzinga

Watermelon, Chicken, Cornbread by artists and husband and wife James Terrell & Zsudayka Nzinga, engages the history of Black American culinary practices. They use their artwork to reclaim imagery around the beauty of the things they eat and examine the rich history behind it. This important practice is highlighted by the works of Michael Twitty and his ideas around decolonizing food culture that has been taken from a group through reclamation of the images, recipes and culinary practices by the discarded culture—in this case Black American.

Art of Noize Gallery is located at 821 Upshur Street NW, Rear.
