We are pleased to announce that our first show will be in February, in order to commemorate Black History Month. We have chosen to do so because all three of us have Black-mixed heritage, as do the subjects of the work being displayed.
“Blackness” is often presented as a flat, one-dimensional monolith, but this image could not be further from the truth. Over 400 years in the making, the Diaspora in Canada is diverse in so many ways: ethnically, linguistically, generationally, economically and, of particular interest in this show, phenotypically.
We believe that our work will add depth to the understanding of Blackness in Canada.
