"Accessible documentaries (we call visual poems), pictures poised with bounty, and shapes animated by breath//////
are the chimes that blow in the wind of my obsession with human culture."
- Marlon F. Hall

 

UNMASKULINITY///

Our human capacity to be whole is directly proportionate to our willingness to be vulnerable. Vulnerability can be the widow through which the wind of life’s bounty blows.  Anthony (a sculptor), Brian (a photographer), and myself are members of a Guild of Griots that will travel the country creating spaces of vulnerability for and archiving the stories of black men who talk about the masks we wear and the freedom we may find. In each city, through practices and rituals of openness, we will invite black men to welcome their greatest fears around vulnerability into the wholly integrated selves they were born to be.  This project will empower black men to disintegrate any ill formed masculine constructs that divide us from the self, community, and relational love that makes us whole.

Marlon, in collaboration with fellow disruptive innovators of art, curates exhibitions for individuals, organizations, and entrepreneurs. This is achieved by pairing custom solutions that help to tell the story of your space in the form of reliquaries using a variety of mediums.
