Black at DCAC

Black Artists of DC and the DC Arts Center reveal Black, as it has never been seen before.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 20, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Artists Talks/Closing Reception: Sunday, January 10, 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Jurors: Renee Stout, Blake Kimbrough, and Marvin Bowser
Curator: Amber Robles-Gordon
Co-Curator: Daniel T. Brooking
Judges: Teresia Bush and Eugene R. Vango

Black asks artists to think introspectively about the emotional and theoretical, the spiritual and cultural, the intellectual and physical aspects of their personal perceptions of blackness. Each artist's objective was to move beyond black as an absence of color and into the predominance of black as a physical and conceptual part of their creations. Artists were able to claim, adorn, redefine and enfold the black experience in and throughout their work. Audiences will be able to relish in black: it's elegance, depth, and sensation of infinity.
