A new exhibition in Kentucky will honor Black lives lost too soon, reflecting in particular on the life of Breonna Taylor, her killing in 2020 and the year of protests that followed in Louisville and around the world.
Taylor was a Black medical worker who was shot and killed by police officers at her home in Louisville. Promise, Witness, Remembrance will open at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville today, April 7, exploring the dualities between a personal, local story and the US's reflection on too many Black lives lost to gun violence and police brutality. It will include work by Theaster Gates, Hank Willis Thomas, Nick Cave and Alisha Wormsley, and is curated by Allison Glenn.
