Exhibition statement:   History and society haven’t always been truthful or kind in the depiction of people of color. But whose depictions are they? “Black On Black” is an exhibition where curators of color asked artists of color to share their thoughts on identity in their own voice.October 7 to 27.

“Black On Black” is curated by Linda Dallas and Mike Williams.

But in this exhibition, we turn the phrase on its head. We take the negative and redefine it. We showcase the perspectives of people of color about other people
