‘BLACKNESS’ is an art exhibition produced by Wonzimer Gallery to provide exposure for visual and auditory art created by black artists. Curated by Tea Vickers and Cheyann Washington on account of letting the artists explore black skin, physique and culture with unprecedented freedom. Offering black artists an opportunity to connect with collectors and dealers in a liberating setting, benefiting them with full commission of sales. All while inspiring the artists to examine their individualism in different mediums of art ranging from paintings, photography, melody, sculptural work and film.
The exhibition will be divided into two time slots.
6 PM to 8 PM and 8:30 PM to 10:30 PM. This is to ensure our guests safety and to limit capacity.
Please RSVP to reserve your desired time slot
Milah Rene is performing an acoustic set at the end of each time slot which allows guests to indulge in all forms of art this diverse Exhibition has to offer.
There will also be a screening room featuring a foreign short film by Tomisin Adepeju. A film highlighting the cultural impact of loss through the eyes of Nigerians living in London. The film will be screened throughout the evening.
‘BLACKNESS’’ challenges the ideology of exploitation in the art world as well as within society and allows for the journey of art and culture to be written in black ink, granting the artists involved true emancipation.
