BirthmarkMedia presents an opening reception for Sixty, a photo exhibition of photographs by Hasna Muhammad. The exhibit is at ArtsWestchester, located at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, New York and runs from November 13th – November 23rd; Tuesdays-Saturdays from 12PM-5PM.
Sixty is an exhibition of Ms. Muhammad’s photographs. Through photography, text, and video, Hasna shares 60 photographs from five collections that capture everyday life and expose human and social conditions. Sixty contains excerpts from: The Extraordinary in the Ordinary—the beauty of our simple surroundings; Sara—the story of a woman living with ALS; Final Days—a glimpse of the rituals of saying goodbye; The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain (A Work in Progress ‘Cause It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over)—the story of a son’s fight for justice for his father; and My Life With Guitars—photographs of guitars. The exhibition is curated by Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe.
In addition to being a photographer, Hasna is also a writer and holds a doctorate in education. She writes non-fiction about family, social justice, and education and is the author of five collections of poetry. Her work has been published at Sankofa.org and Crisis magazine. She is also the creator of Crumb Navigation®, a unique line of saygreetings about navigating the nuances of aging and living well. She is currently working on Places to Stand, a collection of photographic essays about growing up in the home of her parents, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Hasna is celebrating her 60th birthday with this exhibition.
I want others to see what I see and recognize it; connect to it and hopefully be reminded, affirmed, agitated, challenged, and moved by it. –HM
