Benny Bing: Colour Blind Opening Reception
June 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:59 pmFree
Toronto-based artist Benny Bing presents Colour Blind. An exhibition of boldly coloured paintings that celebrates the myriad of contributions of black women to the landscape of style, beauty, and power.
Benny Bing’s vibrant hues embrace the complexities of race while highlighting the uniqueness amongst us all. As an artist of colour, he brings life to his own perception of ‘colourblindness’. But also raises the concern of how it denies prejudicial experiences, cultural heritage and individual perspectives.
The exhibition, considers art as a reflection of identity and that colour is beautiful and it should never be ignored but embraced.
Bing’s work is collected by Dave Chappelle, The Weeknd and Milos Raonic.
