We're excited to announce that on Saturday, April 11th from 5-8p.m. at Baltimore's Terrault Contemporary, True Laurels will launch its sixth volume, The Overseas Issue, which focuses on the narratives of artists based in or native to lands outside of The States.
As many millennials can probably agree, our immediate reality is often limited to what we expose ourselves to digitally. What our friends, favorite artists and publications promote are usually the lenses we see through. True Laurels Volume 6: The Overseas Issue is a challenge to break away from what is comfortable and easily accessible. How is race viewed by young black people in South Africa? What music soundtracks the youth of Paris? What is taking ayahuasca in the forests of Brazil like? The Overseas Issue explores these curiosities and more in hopes of expanding our sometimes-limited perspectives while also searching for common threads through various corners of the world.
There will be music by Brookyn-based DJ Ushka (who is featured in the issue) and visuals by Time Spent.
