a BLACK creative's guide to art exhibitions
This is a monthly meet up for melanated people where we convene, take up space and have relaxed discourse about art from OUR perspective. This gathering is a safe space and it's for artists and non-artists. We visit formal and informal institutions. Follow us on instagram at @aBLACKcreativesguide . We have teamed up with Them People Productions to bring our platform digital in a series called WHEREABOUTS. You can see more about our upcoming show and purchase a ticket with the information below!
WHEREABOUTS: This Saturday a BLACK creative's guide is bringing y’all something new- a virtual event we’re co-hosting with Them People Productions is bringing y’all something new - a virtual event we're that explores all the places where Black art belongs (Psst! That's EVERYWHERE!)
From creative communes to tiny studio apartments, art galleries to gentrifying 'hoods resisting erasure, this series will transport us to all the homes that inspire, protect, and uplift Black creators. And we're starting in our hometown, New Orleans, to kick things off.
This weekend, we'll connect with New Orleans natives Pell, Kr3wcial, and Jamal Barnes to discuss how sharing a birthplace with jazz, living the N.O.'s laissez-faire attitude, and witnessing the aftermath of both man-made and natural disasters has influenced the ways they express themselves.
WHEREABOUTS explores the hometowns, creative spaces, and dwellings that inspire Black artists to create.
On Saturday, June 20th, we'll connect with New Orleans natives PELL, KR3WCIAL, and JAMAL BARNES to discuss how sharing a birthplace with jazz, living the N.O.'s laissez-faire attitude, and witnessing the aftermath of both man-made and natural disasters has influenced the ways they express themselves.
