Farrah Lynch's "Code:For Our Use Only" Exhibit Press Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Farrah Lynch Takes a Closer Look at Subversive Messaging and it’s Potential for the Black Community.
September 3, 2015
Houston, TX, September 12, 2015-October 23, 2015- Code: For Black Use Only determines whether a subversive method of messaging unique to African-Americans can thrive amidst a culture encouraging of overt messaging, especially in the wake of a social assault. Artist Farrah Lynch attempts to construct a “Code” like language system for African-Americans, by examining the black dinner table conversation promoting of a need for black diplomacy and unity in order to thwart future assaults on the black psyche and body in America.
The conversations are inadvertent and familiar fortresses of solutions that allows for participants to testify without any real substance because to move outside of the noise would require a reneging on the comforts crafted and learned ideals that sanction our participation in society, albeit a limited participation.
Farrah tests this idea and injects the use of mixed media into this series of coded visual epitaphs, by electing to work with vinyl fabric, digital media, wood and charcoal. Through the deliberate use of this media, Farrah was required to move in heat and sweat, exerting her physical strength in order for construction; her attempt at mimicking the actions that must be taken to shift the conversation from a stalemate to an actual, soluble product, or in this case, a change in social status.
Farrah Lynch is a Houston based, self-taught visual artist interested in reinterpreting the Black American narrative through her lens as a black girl in America. For her, the use of “girl” denotes a time in America, where the black citizen, whether man or woman were relegated to second class status among whites by use of this designation. The inability to be seen as equals through this designation was indicative of a mindset where the African American citizen was underestimated. Farrah feels like operating within this realm of underestimation allows her ample space and opportunity for defiance through her art in subject matter and careful use of unorthodox materials. She interprets the complexity of her laments on social issues to women’s issues, plus, as a multi-disciplinary artist.

In fulfilling its mission, HMAAC seeks to invite and engage visitors of every race and background, and to inspire children of all ages through discovery-driven learning. HMAAC is a museum for all people. While our focus is the African American experience, our story in Texas informs and includes not only people of color, but people of all colors.
