Najee Dorsey

October 7 @ 5:00 pm - December 23 @ 4:00 pm

Southern Crossroads

Najee Dorsey chronicles moments in Black life throughout history. Born in Blytheville, Arkansas on January 26, 1973, this visual artist and publisher of Black Art in America has become known for his mixed media collage, digital media collage images of little known and unsung historical figures, as well as nostalgic scenes from African American life in the southern United States. In Dorsey’s view, “Stories untold are stories forgotten.”

Southern Crossroads is a series of stunning mixed media and photomontage works that explore Dorsey’s connection to his southern roots. Many characters in his evocative imagery are of well-known individuals and family, as well as beautiful stand-ins for humanity.
