Ruddy Roye, TIME's Instagram Photographer of 2016, will be opening the first exhibit of the New Year at The Half King. In his national project When Living is a Protest, Ruddy's roving eye relentlessly affirms the dignity of African Americans who meet spiritual and mortal threats and neglect on a daily basis. Ruddy began working on this series in August 2014, when Ferguson's citizens were beginning to resist the worn-out excuses for Michael Brown's killing. Ruddy's project is ongoing and attempts to engage with African American men who cannot make lives for themselves with what they've been given, but must start from scratch.

​Opening reception: January 9, 2017, 7:00 P.M.
