"Are Black creatives just grinding in the art world or do they have any influence in the expansion and future thought of Black narratives?" Join us on April 14 for the second program in partnership with SeeBlackWomxn. This conversation dives into the power dynamics of art between artists, art schools, museums, curators, and the selection process that defines what art "is". SeeBlackWomxn prompts "Are we just being seen and not heard?".

This event is part of Virtual Wednesdays, a weekly YouTube broadcast bringing you unique viewpoints exploring diversity, resilience, and creative spirit in the arts as we aim to reframe our exhibitions and collections.
SeeBlackWomxn is an esteemed collective of artists, activists, and writers raised on Black feminist theory. Their platform emphasizes self-representation, free from the stereotypical tropes assigned to Black women. This partnership unfolds through a five-part event series centering the lineage and legacy of Black women and the contemporary Black Arts scene and features the voices of collective cofounders Tahirah Rasheed, Angela Hennessy, Dana King, and Jamani Montague.
