This exhibition is inspired by Blaxploitation, which provided black audiences with cinematic heroes and was considered at the time as a more honest or accurate portrayal of black realities than those depicted in most Hollywood pictures.

For EBSPLOITATION, Martos Gallery will transform into a movie theater and present a program of short films and videos that show a different side to filmmaking. The curated program will run daily during gallery hours.
