L.A. TIMES: Bonus round: ‘Out the Mud: A Black American Rite of Passage

b. Robert Moore is presenting his first solo exhibition at Thinkspace Gallery in West Adams. Moore’s work explores the complexities of being Black in America. He deconstructs traditional African tribes’ rites of passage and centers it on the rite of passage for African Americans, differentiating what coming of age means for the community here: survival. With works like “Amerikkka Made US ‘Crazy’” and “Messiah // Middle Child,” Moore dissects the life of Black youth and their resilience. The free exhibition runs until March 25. Thinkspace Gallery is open noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and details can be found on its website.
