Artist Statement

Black (Art) City draws inspiration from the activist, art and direct action space, BlackCity, (BLMTO, March 2016), honouring this legacy of activist aesthetics, the one year anniversary of this gathering and serving as a jumping off point for conversations on future collaborations between artists and activists in black liberation movements

Artists Syrus Marcus Ware, Melisse Watson, Kiké N. Otuije, Ravyn Wngz and other guests artists will work in residency over the two week installation, creating new drawing, dance textile and print works, while building a drop in space reminiscent of the social, networking and gathering space of black city.

Come by and visit the artists, connect with other black activists, check out the ever changing window displays, and tap into art-based movement building!

Till we free, we keep on!

access info:
There is a ramp to the door. The door is off of a parking lot that is ashphalt. The inside of the space has plywood flooring. The space is largely open and uncluttered and spacious. There are two washrooms. One has a 2 inch lip down into it, the other is even grade/no step. This second washroom would be good for turn around etc in a chair, but the first washroom might be too tight for a turn around.
there is good lighting, and the lights can be made brighter/less bright as needed. There are no flashing or strobe lights.
