Nashville-based artist LeXander Bryant’s debut solo exhibition Forget Me Nots opens at the Frist Art Museum on Friday, January 28. The exhibit addresses themes of perseverance amid adversity, family struc­tures and bonds, economic inequality, community activism, and more. The exhibition’s centerpiece is a suspended cracked concrete slab out of which blue forget-me-not flowers bloom, which references the late rapper Tupac Shakur’s poem “The Rose that Grew from Concrete” and honors survival despite seemingly impossible circumstances. Other artwork includes studio photographs, a “memory wall,” murals, and a video of intimate interviews with LeXander’s family and friends from his hometown.
