⚫ About ⚫
Black is said to be “the sum of all colours” when a black colour is obtained from a mixture of various pigments. Black is also said to be the “absence of colour” when all light radiation is removed. Black is a colour that results from the absence or complete absorption of visible light. To be all and absent in the same breath is a rare and unique positionality.
In this exhibition, the concepts of Indigeneity and Blackness are explored through visual and performance-based arts such as film, dance, jewelry and poetry. The Sum of All is a celebration of the lived experiences of the featured artists and guest curator who represent multiple cultural groups.
