The exhibition Ground Control, organized by Nicholas Baume, Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund, featured outdoor and site-specific works in Collins Park for the Public sector of Art Basel. From November 30th to December 4th the works were produced in collaboration with The Bass Museum of Art and supported by MGM Resorts Arts and Culture. Challenging some of the norms for public sculpture the works invite visitors to engage in innovative ways, as some sculptures shape shift with interaction. Favorites from the exhibition are below!

Sunday, April 12th from at 4:00pm – 5:30pm be sure to check out Nakeya Brown in conversation with Kimberly Drew, founder of Black Contemporary Art! The talk with take place at 558 St Johns Pl, Crown Heights, New York 11238.
TOP RANK Magazine and FiveMyles are pleased to present In Private Moments, an exhibition featuring the photography of Nakeya Brown. Brown’s whimsically colored, minimally composed still-lives examine the visualization of black womanhood by engaging with the fraught cultural politics of hair. With a conceptual focus on the objects and rituals of hair maintenance, Brown’s portraits present the duality of emotions associated with black hair aesthetics – happiness and pain; beauty and sacrifice; collectivity and alienation – to render visible the deeply intimate process of self-representation. Brown’s photography is featured in the inaugural issue of TOP RANK Magazine.
