About the Exhibition

Black on Black on Black on Black is an exhibition and series of interactive programming, co-created by the Black faculty at the School of Art & Design, which draws from lived experiences and Black speculation, featuring works across visual art and design, socially engaged practice, video, movement, and music. This exhibition and programming invites us to experience, explore, and reflect on Black identity, history, collectivity, healing, innovation, education, struggle, and joy.
