A new exhibit at the Speed Art Museum, called “Promise, Witness, Remembrance,” reflects on the life of Breonna Taylor and the resulting protests around Louisville and the world. Taylor was killed in her home by Louisville Metro police officers in March of last year.
The exhibit features work curated by Allison Glenn, a contemporary art curator, and seeks to explore the nation’s “reflection on the promise, witness, and remembrance of too many black lives lost to gun violence.”
The section “Promise” explores the ideologies of the US, while “Witness” addresses the moments and finally, “Remembrance,” which reflects on the legacies of those affected.
The exhibit is available now until June 6 and is free to U of L students. More information about the exhibit can be found here.
