The event creator says
The Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable* juried visual art show seeks to examine the impact of state violence on Black lives. Through art, the show seeks to build on the movement against anti-Black racism following the killing of Trayvon Martin and the non-indictments of police in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner killings.

*The name Black Lives Matter is used with permission from the #BlackLivesMatter organization, founded in 2012 by Opal Tometi, Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza. Background on the organization: "#BlackLivesMatter was created after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year old Trayvon was post-humously placed on trial for his own murder. Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our de-humanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society. Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes. … Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements. It is a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement.”
