Design Exchange says
Ain't I A Woman - I Am A Man recounts history, family, celebration, hope, trauma, desire, and love within the soul and body of Black men and women through their visual and poetic work. This exhibition aims to highlight the voices and perspectives of youth on matters concerning the Black diaspora.

RSVP to the closing reception via: rsvp@dx.org

The exhibition is currently running inside the studio space at Design Exchange. On Sunday, April 23 DX will be hosting a poetry reading and closing reception for Ain't I A Woman - I Am A Man.

The intent of the exhibition is to bring together a narrative that critically explores and celebrates the Black diaspora. Diaspora is the scattering of people from their homeland. From Africa, to the Caribbean, to South America, and to the streets of Toronto; I look to these artists as storytellers of their ancestry and present time.

Through art and community we are discovering and reclaiming our diverse history, cultures and traditions. The studio is a space for the artists to share their reality. Visitors will step into a space that explores the complexities and nuances within the Black diaspora.

This is a space for conversation to challenge the ways in which media, culture and history inform and shape discourse.
