“In the latest exhibit at the Richard Beavers Gallery is Philadelphia based artist Shawn Theodore’s Church of Broken Pieces. Church of Broken Pieces is a collection of vivid images by photographer Shawn Theodore, a multidisciplinary artist working in photography, video, and collage. Shawn’s images have been selected as the lead photograph for the second time by Apple’s Instagram page, Another image, “Being Black Outweighs One’s Blues,” was selected as the cover of the September 2016 issue of Smithsonian Magazines, which announced the grand opening of the National Museum of African American History & Culture.
The work embodies a defiant brand of black artistry. One that focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of African American and African Diaspora identities and otherness, while exploring concepts of race, spirituality, patriarchy, matriarchy, and class structure within disappearing Black communities.”
