Artwork from the Magic of Blackness exhibit
Art Gallery Exhibit Opens with “Magical” Evening
“Existence as Resistance: The Magic in Blackness” opened on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2020 in the African American Cultural Center Art Gallery. The third annual spring exhibition is a collaboration of the Women’s Center with the African American Cultural Center and the GLBT Center. The exhibit’s concept is the simple act of Black people existing as a form of resistance.

This year, the opening fell on the birthday of poet, essayist and Black feminist icon Audre Lorde, who serves as source of inspiration and strength for Angela Gay, curator of the exhibit. Gay, who serves as assistant director of the Women’s Center, said, “This exhibit, like the others, is a visual love story as Black people assert their radical imagination to move towards a liberatory future for themselves and others.”
