Gordon Parks Gallery

'Taken' opening reception

Part of the Gordon Parks Gallery series

Taken features the photographs of Minneapolis artist Nikki McComb in this solo exhibit at Gordon Parks Gallery in celebration of Black History Month.

McComb is a documentary photographer and social justice activist whose topics have included gun violence, bullying in schools, and slum lord housing practices and evictions. Most of her projects start by addressing social concerns in the North Minneapolis neighborhood she lives in but have much broader reach in our community because of the people and agencies she partners with, works for, or has been recognized by. McComb refers to herself as an ‘artivist’ because her photography and community organizing together inspire people, where one without the other would not.

The opening reception, 5–7:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 20, features a gallery talk by the artist at 7 p.m.
