BLACK.. IN COLOUR
October 20, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Save for Later
Presents a contemporary art exhibition for Black History Month 2017.
Black contemporary art is often defined by those who do not produce the work or value the culture from which it is borne.
As well as providing a platform for local practitioners, Black In Colour aims to showcase artists of colour whose works engage with black visual art as a mutable concept; a collapsing of the boundaries that define representations of blackness, a bringing together of the past, present and future meditations on what the artists consider blackness to be, and what it can become.
