Opening Reception For Darin DeField’s Afrocentricity at LITM, February 7th, At 6pm

Bar LITM (140 Newark Ave) will be holding an opening reception for Darin DeField’s “Afrocentricity,” an exhibition of mixed media collage that explores race, gender, sexuality, and identity, on Tuesday, February 7th, from 6pm-8pm.

One of Jersey City’s most influential artists, DeField’s work has appeared in both public galleries and private collections such as the Merrill Lynch Corporation in New York, the Case Museum in Jersey City and Goldman Sachs Corporate Offices in New Jersey. He has also spoken in reference to his work at Essex County College (Newark campus) and The Jersey City Museum.

Gallery goers may recognize Defield’s most acclaimed work, “Head Series,” in which he re-considers the idea of indigenous tribal masks by extrapolating from African sculpture and archaeological artifacts.
