Join us for the third installment of Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime Performance Series, featuring Grady Owens and GDFX.

About Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime
Currently on view at Knockdown Center, artist Azikiwe Mohammed has staged a performative installation of his fictional thrift store, Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime. New Davonhaime – a location conceived by Mohammed – is an amalgamation of the names of the five most densely populated Black cities in America: New Orleans, Detroit, Jackson, Birmingham, and Savannah. Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime was created to serve as a safe space for Black and Brown people living in America. Knockdown Center’s galleries have been fully transformed into a thrift store that contains objects both created and found by Mohammed including tapestries, records, postcards, paintings, lamps, and books.
