Horse Day exhibition is the culmination of an eight-month collaboration between Algerian/French artist Mohamed Bourouissa and young Black horsemen belonging to a non-profit equestrian society in Strawberry Mansion, an impoverished Philadelphia neighbourhood. Centring the narrative on the group’s preparation and presentation of a celebratory riding competition and pageant, Bourouissa’s video examines the visual stereotypes and misrepresentations associated with “cowboy culture” in the United States.
Sept 16-Nov 28. Artist talk at noon, Nov 4. Online via Zoom
