Join us on the opening day of Jarrett Key’s solo exhibition Chosen Family’ our first exhibition as Praise Shadows Art Gallery. We are thrilled to have curator Ellen Y. Tani in conversation with Key for this online event.⁠
Jarrett Key lives and works in Providence, RI. Key is a recent MFA graduate from RISD Painting. Key is one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 for Art and Style 2020. Key’s practice embodies several modes of production in one frame. Through form, image, and material, the objects they make integrate a sculpture, painting, and performance practice. Excavating lost stories and the oral histories that define their upbringing in rural Alabama, Key’s work seeks to criticize those historical conditions that are the seeds of contemporary issues in their life, while creating spaces that celebrate beauty, joy and survival.

Ellen Y. Tani is the 2020-2022 A.W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts in Washington, DC. Her research in African American art and contemporary art engages critical race studies, American studies, and feminism, and has been supported by the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African and African American Studies, the Clark Art institute, and the Getty Research Institute. She has worked as a curator at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and the ICA/Boston, and was a co-organizer of Area Code Art Fair in 2020.
