Not For Sale

A tribute to Black and Brown communities, Not For Sale explores the relationship between culture, consumerism and community and how these connections inform which objects and materials we collectively hold valuable. Contributing artists Anthony Akinbola, LaKela Brown, David Hammons, Lucia Hierro, Arthur Jafa, Emmanuel Massillon and Sable Elyse Smith use a wide range of materials and media to focus on establishments in low-income communities such as the corner deli, beauty supply store, local jail, church and liquor store. Not For Sale highlights what is exchanged, bought and consumed in these local spaces. Located in Dixwell, a historically African American neighborhood in New Haven, the exhibition references essential areas of commerce and communal gathering found in communities across the United States.
