Constant as The Sun
June 2, 2017 - September 17, 2017
“Constant as the Sun is the third installment in MOCA Cleveland’s series of thematic group exhibitions focusing on artists working in or deeply connected to the region, including artists working in cities in Western Pennsylvania, Western New York, and Eastern Michigan.”
Acerbic’s contribution to the exhibition, Do Not Consider Us Forgotten (2017), examines Cleveland’s inner city neighborhoods, a predominantly Black community. One neighborhood is often referred to as The Forgotten Triangle based on decades of economic and municipal neglect. Mural-sized images capture familiar scenes from Kinsman and Buckeye, including young men driving off-road vehicles through empty streets, while hanging Plexiglas panels contain the poems “Kinsman,” “Hood Stroll,” and “We Are Here.” Layered together, these images and words provide a window into daily life in the Kinsman neighborhood.
