Visual artist Corey Damon Black will debut his first unique exhibition featuring his own personal works called NO TASTE, which will feature 23 works by Black, including his highly regarded protesting collages and scanned-made images on both large and small canvases. This will be the first in a series of shows by Black, with the next one scheduled for late summer in NYC.
With modern-day societal frustrations acting as his muse, Black pairs modern images with editorial-style, thought provoking words atop them in a collage-like work. He used scanned images atop painted canvases to communicate his thought that nothing is perfect or imperfect - it’s all a matter of taste. His one-of-one pieces represent modern American frustration and emotions - from rejection, acceptance and self-reflection. The artworks are a modern riff on human emotion and gossip.
Black notes about the name of the show, NO TASTE , “Having a ‘level of taste’ is just for people to live an ego-driven life. Burn your ego. Having no taste is living a life free of ego and opinion. That’s the idea that inspired the show’s name and also my desire to create these works. It’s how I live my life.”
Guests will enjoy complimentary beverages and sounds by local Miami DJ DZA. All 23 pieces, curated by Miami native Nicole Crisonino, are available for purchase. The address of the Palm Court event space is 140 NE 39th Street, Miami.
