Jacolby Satterwhite (MFA '10) in Exhibit at RAG, Opening Fri, Jan 29, 6:00-8:00pm

Jacolby Satterwhite (MFA '10) will have work in an exhibit titled The Mothership Has Landed at Rush Arts Gallery, opening Friday, January 29 from 6:00 - 8:00pm.

The Mothership Has Landed
is a group exhibition featuring sculpture, video, photography and painting by Brandon Coley Cox, Lainie Dalby, Ayanna V. Jackson, Glendalys Medina, Marcus Morales and Jacolby Satterwhite. Guest Curator: Derrick Adams.

The title of the show borrows from the infamous George Clinton + Funkadelic and their decades-long experimental movement combining music, fashion, illustration and performance. Their phrase, "The Mothership Has Landed" can roughly translate to "The shit is about to hit the fan!" and illustrates the collective nature of the group's overall expressive and raw quality.

A similar expressive and raw quality can be seen in this group of artists. Their works are cultural hybrids borrowing from the familiar and inspired by their investigation of media transformed through personal experience, resulting in a cosmic array of images, objects and performance. "Here's a chance to dance our way out of our constrictions…with the groove our only guide, we shall all be moved."
