The two-day art exhibition features a variety of vignettes and installations that reflect themes and scenes represented in the Random Acts of Flyness variety series. Designed to celebrate black culture, the two-day experience will feature several interactive elements including: “Black Women Will Save Us All” Room-highlighting the Black women who continue to make and re-shape history, “Sexual Proclivities of the Black Community- a recreated bedroom set seen in the first episode of the series that showcases non-traditional black love as well as a live recording of a podcast with Terence Nance.

The Random Acts of Flyness exhibit is not just an art installation. It is a multi-sensory experience that includes: mind-bending imagery, provocative and in-your-face art as well as interactive spaces for humans to just lay around and be “human”. Blackface, not to be confused with ‘blackface’ is beautifully showcased. A glorious reimaging of braids is elegantly displayed in a work by Shani Crowe entitled “Braids”. Marketing on body creams and lotions labeled “White Be Gone” is unapologetically black and genius, in an overt attempt to assist the presumed buyers in ridding themselves of whiteness.

While the Random Acts of Flyness exhibit makes no attempt to appease anyone offended with notions that defy convention. The concept is unique enough and appealing that anyone wanting to learn or experience something out of the ordinary would be enticed to visit this art installation.
The HBO Random Acts of Flyness Exhibit will open to the public on Friday, August 17th from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM and Saturday, August 18th from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Location: 477 Broadway-New York, NY.
The television series Random Acts of Flyness airs on Fridays at midnight on HBO.
