    Esmaa Mohamoud
    The Brotherhood FUBU (For Us, By Us)

    Jun 10,  2021–Apr 30,  2024
    Focusing on the physical connection between Black male bodies by amplifying the symbol of the du-rag, Esmaa Mohamoud confronts the dynamics of gender and race. Both of the components of her two-part commissioned project—a massive photographic mural on Bay Street, unveiled in June 2021 and on view until April 30, 2024, and a bronze sculpture installed at nearby Harbour Square Park, unveiled in September 2022 and on view until September 15, 2025—assert a commanding occupation of public space. Foregrounding the powerful symbol of the du-rag, the Toronto- and Markham-based artist opens a dialogue about systemic inequity, while signalling positive change.
