Pixelation: interrogating the ways in which contemporary art and design perpetuate or challenge anti-blackness. Curated by Zviko Mhakayakora.
This exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which Black identity has been formed, shaped, or erased through visual culture.
The overarching purpose of this exhibition is to bring awareness to racial stereotypes, that shape 'what it means to be black'. With awareness, comes responsibility to make change in one's own sphere.
The aim is to reclaim representations while creating a space where people are able to talk about uncomfortable topics. How can contemporary art and design be used as a tool for reclamation and decolonization?
