In commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre and as a continuation of Melton Gallery’s social justice art programming, “The Spaces Between” is a group art exhibition featuring Eyakem Gulilat’s photo-documentary series along with independent short films from the Oklahoma Cine Latino Film Festival. The narratives in these works investigate the personal and political nature of our shared spaces: the spaces that separate us, that bind us, and those that deny us. The exhibition will be on view in Melton Gallery from March 11-April 22, followed by an outdoor film festival on April 30, 2021.

Gulilat’s photography commemorates the Tulsa Race Massacre and documents the lives and erased history of historically Black spaces such as North Tulsa and Boley, Oklahoma. The films selected from the OK Cine Latino Film Festival offer a kaleidoscopic view of Latin American experiences navigating internal and external barriers.
