Interpretation of Black of Hanson Brown

“The Interpretation of Black of Hanson Brown," A Dual Media Exhibit of Sight and Sound is coming to StudioPlex, 659 Auburn Ave., Studio #259, Atlanta, Georgia, April 6-9. April 6th, the Opening Reception will be held from 6-9 pm.

Not an ordinary exhibit, but a true elevation. Viewers leave excited because they have used something more than sight, there is the introduction of audio, creating a new elemental experience. The two combined together forge the true conceptual experience and then…they ask you to use your mind.

“The color and the culture of Black in historical and current popular American society takes on many inspirational forms”.

In September 2005, the dual media exhibit of "Interpretation of Black of Hanson Brown" debuted in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Bombarded by the need to see more, there was an insistence that the exhibit go on the road. They will be showing in Atlanta, GA April 2006, Brooklyn, NY May 2006, Berlin, Germany, September 2006 and the list goes on and on.

It is the collaboration of the artist, D. Lammie-Hanson and Sound Designer, Stanley Brown. These two Black-American artists both from Brooklyn, NY have come together to collaborate on this theory with visual and sound design of what Black means to them and the communities that they live in.

D. Lammie-Hanson, a multi-faceted self-taught artist, concentrates on the visual dynamics and nuances within predominantly African-American communities by race, internal cultural differences, individual strife and the spiritual."If I wasn't born a Black woman… would I like the person I would have been?" And I answered, "Probably not". I love and relish being a Black woman …"

The Sound Designer, Stanley N. Brown, has always been inspired by the state of the world, particularly the state of urban Black neighborhoods. Brown who is the co-founder/guitarist for the hardcore powerfunk band D-XTREME, believes in the promise and future of Black-America. Brown believes "... as artists we are filters. We experience life, process it, and then repackage the experience for the end user via our selected medium." "I feel that the audio reflects my life experience as a Black American artist".

Together they bring an interpretation of both community and culture through art and audio. As seen in their debut exhibit, conversation ran fast and furious amongst viewers. References to black historical quotes; “The Talented Tenth”, “Paper Bag Test” and “Sag Harbor” sparked discussions that left all thinking and on edge. But…with an overwhelming sense of excitement and the need to discover more.

"Interpretation of Black of Hanson Brown", the experience of what is Black, the color and culture, and then designing their own template into an exhibit as a Black celebration. This show is touring the world over and is broadening the senses and the mind.
