"Zero Tolerant: an exhibition of collages by Ikemefuna"
2000-04-05 until 2000-05-30
Towson University, African-American Cultural Center
Towson, MD, USA United States of America

The 21st Century has greeted African-Americans with a number of critical challenges. The struggle to survive has taken its toll on our mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. Slumping in the doldrums of drugs and depression, we watch the forces of hate line its offensive against our existence. Its philosophy merits zero tolerance as a means of control through fear. Afraid of ourselves and the offensive, we witness an absurd increase in crimes of police brutality and human rights abuses. To be zero tolerant is the order of our time.

Ikemefuna has created a series of collages entitled Zero Tolerant. The series poignantly illustrates the brutal incidents that have taken place at the threshold of the 21st Century. His mission is threefold: to expose these atrocious human rights abuses to the general public, to document them in an artistic form, and to generate financial resources for the families of the victims. In this manner, Ikemefuna crystallizes the essential meaning of artistic expression. He is an exception among our generation of artists.

Select pieces, including the provocative Diallo, 1999, from Zero Tolerant can be seen on April 5th at Towson University's African-American Cultural Center.
