The Contemporary Dayton (The Co), presents artists who perpetually confront subjects surrounding current events encompassing political resistance and protests. This new exhibition features Indiana-based and internationally renowned painter, Samuel Levi Jones, Dayton’s most prolific artist, activist, and elder statesman, Willis “Bing” Davis, and Vietnamese film and visual artist, Tuan Andrew Nguyen. The three exhibitions will open the evening of Friday, November 5, 2021 and be on view through January 16, 2022.

“The Co is committed to presenting artists whose practices speak to prominent issues of our time,” states The Co’s Executive Director, Eva Buttacavoli. “These three exhibitions will challenge the way brutality is embedded in institutional systems and the beauty in consistently seeking out the truth.”
