Keegan’s second show in Brooklyn, NY, paid homage to the beauty of the color black as a pigment. It shined a light on the negative dictionary associations with the word, and took a stance against those associations that negatively impact the lives of those who bear black skin.
As a Jamaican-American, conversations about race, ethnic backgrounds, and societal norms have always been prominent in Keegan’s life. All works were based around the color black. There were 160 attendees, Carter sold 80% of his artwork, Zeidan sold all of her work, and no refreshment sponsors were engaged due to COVID-19 precautions.
I AM WHAT I AM
Keegan’s first show in Oakland, CA, included an un-curated selection of work made since his journey began. He used the show to encourage experiencers to reveal their true self and live it everyday. For context, this is the first time that Keegan publicly reintroduced himself to the world as an artist, whereas he was previously known for his business and technology ventures. There were 85 attendees, Keegan sold 45% of his artwork, and refreshments were supplied by Belaire.
