Bridge Red Studios is pleased to present, "Jacksonfive" curated by Yanira Collado + william cordova opening, July 21st, 2024, from 4-PM to 6pm. A group exhibition by five contemporary artists from Jackson, Mississippi that includes painters, Sherrell Ford, Sabrina Howard, modern dancer, Doshia Collins and filmmakers Christopher Windfield and Talamieka Brice. The five artists are part of a Peer-to-Peer program Collado created during her 2023-2024 tenure as artist in residence at the Center for Art and Public Exchange (CAPE), within the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson Mississippi. Collado's Peer-to-Peer program included workshops with guest professional visual artist/activist, Chire "VantaBlack" Regans, filmmakers, Tarell Alvin McCraney, Eddie Brown, photographer/videographer, Michiko Kurisu, interdisciplinary cultural practitioner, william cordova and Ivy S. Bennett, contemporary dancer and a director of programing at Arts 4 Learning, Miami.

Sherrell Ford's representational paintings meditate on the quotidian narratives of community observation. Her practice includes an array of gestural drawings. Sabrina Howard, likewise focuses on paintings that draw from historical and community based individuals. Often constructing unconventional surfaces that complement themes of fragmentation. Dancer, Doshia Collins, like dancer/choreographer, Pearl Primus and postmodern choreographer/dancer, Rudy Perez, builds her performances with minimal staging. Collins responds more so to her environmental conditions in Jackson, MA. Filmmaker, Christopher Windfield's feature length documentaries chronicle the deep peripheral history of Southern life. Windfield's practice is multi-disciplinary and includes sculpture and painting. His contributions to the "Jacksonfive" exhibition at under the bridge art space, will be a large scale sculpture addressing one of the main pillars of urban vernacular culture, the sneaker. A short documentary teaser will also be included. Talamieka Brice, an activist, filmmaker and photographer whose work concentrates on social themes; gender, race, equality and family, will share production stills from a documentary as well as a short film.
