The Ambiguities of Blackness: Dr. Lizzetta LeFalle-Collins
On behalf of the Minnesota Street Project Foundation, we are delighted to announce The Ambiguities of Blackness, the first of five exhibitions by the inaugural grantees of the California Black Voices Project. Curated by Dr. Lizzetta LeFalle-Collins, The Ambiguities of Blackness examines who and what defines “Black art.” The answer’s complexity is central to the exhibition, and considered by the seven participating artists: April Banks, Lavialle Campbell, Karen Hampton, Raymond Holbert, David Huffman, Lauren McIntosh, and Lezley Saar.
“Black people are not culturally and ancestrally monolithic,” says Dr. LeFalle-Collins. “Many of us know this, but forget it when looking at Black art. Due to the nature of Black enslavement, our experiences are multidimensional, embracing many nuanced stories, ethnic histories and notions, and varying perspectives as we explore and carve out our sense of place in the world.”
The Ambiguities of Blackness will be free and open to the public at 1275 Minnesota Street Project, in the Atrium. The exhibition will also be presented on Adjacent, the Project’s virtual space for art. No appointments necessary.
