For Immediate Release
DENVER - Artist Chloe' Duplessis unpacked a little bit of history last night, while appearing on the Creative Assembly show, a monthly program designed to bring artists together for shared learning, mutual support and experiences in community. The program is an initiative of Denver-based nonprofit Transforming Creatives.
While speaking with interviewer Allison Greene, Duplessis also offered insight into the importance of presenting an authentic, inclusive overview of American history, and the immeasurable
opportunity that artists have in advancing culture.
"Artists...and more importantly artists of color have the capacity to shift consciousness, counteract conditioning, and elevate the culture - just by showing up. " Duplessis says.
Duplessis is a legally blind digital collage artist based in greater Denver. Her latest collection of work, Negro Stories opened in January to widespread acclaim. The exhibition will travel to New Orleans this month for a one-night showing at the famed Old No. 77 Hotel on June 12. Duplessis is currently serving as the Artist-in - Residence for the historic property.
