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. fristartmuseum.org
