Before COVID-19, Brooks was named the first curator in residence for the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, which features the work of hundreds of visual artists, performers and musicians spanning 12 miles along the 22-mile Atlanta BeltLine corridor and touching almost 20 intown communities. As an advocate and contributing player in not only the arts community, but also Atlanta as a whole, she explained the goal of the “Hidden Truths” exhibit is to highlight Black artists’ voices through their creative process.
“As we continue to retain our subconscious minds at a soul level, we learn to control our emotions and yet be present with [them] at the same time,” she explained. “This is a reminder that art is therapy. Art is meditation. Art is prayer.”
“Hidden Truths: Group Exhibition Exploring Shadow Work” is on display through March 6, 2021. Film screenings from local filmmakers Emef Griffin, Melissa Alexander, Olamma, Oparah and Arshley Emile surrounding shadow work, also will take place throughout the space.
