Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement
