Sanford Biggers' Just Us displays a clouded sky punctured with the words “Just Us” in a cutout-style font that reveals alternative views of more clouds. Just Us both evokes “justice” and highlight an unnamed group “us” suggesting the multifaceted and nuanced nature of the idea of “justice.” Here the conflation of text and image questions notions of stability and consistency of meaning within language.

Following the mural's unveiling ceremony, join us for a conversation with Sanford Biggers inside the CAC's Black Box Theater, joined by Andrea Andersson, Rivers Institute Founding Director and Chief Curator and Dr. Kara Olidge, Amistad Research Center Executive Director. The talk will discuss Sanford's past and current collaborations and the use of material history in contemporary practice.

Seating is extremely limited and will be available via RSVP only on a first come, first serve basis. Proof of vaccination will be required for entry along with a confirmed RSVP. Masks will be required of all attendees.
