Needs a location
Jon Key (he/him/his) is a Queer Black man originally from the small rural town Seale, Alabama now living and working in Bushwick, NY. A writer, designer and painter, his work excavates the lineage and history of his identity through four themes: Southernness, Blackness, Queerness, and Family.
Through the process of writing, photography and painting, Jon’s work is portrayed graphically through four colors: Green, Black, Violet and Red. Respectively, these colors intertwine memory and intimate recounting of the four pillars grounding the work.
In this tour, we embark on some close looking.
Together we ask: What do you see?
👋 Oh, Hi. We are Considering.Art™ presented by Considering.Live™ - a new LIVE arts and cultural engagement network that's as unique as you are.
Unlike a typical museum/gallery tour here at CA - it's not really about us; we are more interested in you. Your thoughts and your ideas.
Never repeated and uniquely yours, our interactive and explorative video tours typically last 90 mins in duration and are facilitated LIVE by your very own interpretative guides. Cool right?
With a focus on contemporary art, we aim to explore some of today's most pressing issues - bringing thoughts, feelings, and observations into a lively and sometimes challenging exchange.
We believe in the power of art and community as a means of building a more equitable, inclusive, and just future. We are super excited to welcome you into our community as together we join each other on this exciting journey.
As always, all of our events are FREE to attend & are never recorded. We schedule online events every Wednesday and broadcast LIVE at 7 PM Eastern Time/ 4 PM Pacific Time from our home in Brooklyn, New York.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Until then, stay creative and keep asking questions.
