Noah Davis’ new paintings and collages are, in his words, “instances where black aesthetics and modernist aesthetics collide.” This exhibition will also feature selections from the Underground Museum's collection featuring affiliated artists and collectors including Karon Davis, Dan Eldon, Lyle Ashton Harris, Kahlil Joseph, Deana Lawson, Hank Peltzer, Henry Taylor, Kandis Williams and Suné Woods.
Noah Davis (born 1983, Seattle, WA) studied painting at Cooper Union in New York City and lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He founded The Underground Museum in 2012 and operates the ongoing not for profit project. The Underground Museum is a revolutionary platform for the arts and community in the West Adams / Crenshaw district of central Los Angeles. It offers a new public entity for exhibitions and programming as no inner-city institution has done before. Through exhibitions, film screenings, a public garden and library, The Underground Museum upholds the belief that art is an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society. This month, The Underground Museum was honored with LAXART’s 10 Year Anniversary Artist Grant for its contribution to the community.

Visiting Artist Residency Program proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis via bhqfu.org.
