Young, Gifted & Black: Transforming Visual Media, guest-curated by Shanté Cozier and Dionne Lee, presents five artists using the mediums of film, video, and photography to propel a shift in the ways that cultural identity is understood. This exhibition, part of CCNY’s Guest Curators Program, brings together a diverse group who counter cultural stereotypes with new forms of identity and self-expression through their work. ”

everything that makes me breathe
make it simple like that
farther and farther from me until it can’t be seen
i call you baby
baby’s called my happiness
baby i just want it simple
