Black Artstory Month 2014

Posted by Chad Sat, Feb 1st, 2014 4083 views

We are proud to announce the return of Black Artstory Month for 2014, kicking off on Saturday, February 1st. Taking inspiration from Richard Wright’s Native Son, written in Fort Greene, the 2014 installment of Black Artstory Month is entitled Native Sons and Daughters: Locals, Im(migrants), Expats and Prodigals. Native Sons and Daughters includes FREE exhibitions and performances inspired by the migratory experiences of African Americans, and continues the Black Artstory Month tradition of celebrating the enduring influences and contributions made by African Americans within the visual and performing arts worlds.

Native Sons and Daughters will bring together stories of travel, of exploring identities, of seeking to establish roots and of pursuing ownership of a space and place. While the primary focus is on the African American experiences, these journeys and pursuits are universal—crossing cultural and racial lines. Artists will reflect on this through spoken word, storytelling, music, visual art, and more at locations across Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill throughout the month of February.

Curated by Daonne Huff, the month features a thought-provoking blend of multi-disciplinary artists, media and ideas. Look for events and experiences for all ages created in collaboration with Aisha Cousins, Act Now Foundation, FOKUS, SONYA (South of the Navy Yard Artists), and Try Harder NYC, and for art exhibitions in 10 Myrtle Avenue businesses from more than 20 artists.
