This is an exhibit born out of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, created to provide space for people to be seen and heard. This exhibition is about sharing histories and celebrate lives, and to encourage understanding and respect among neighbors. In this moment in history, the Carnegie Center for Art & History wants to share their space to highlight the work and vision of both local and national African American artists to bring national conversations to the region.
#BlackArtMatters highlights the talent and value of art created by black artists. But it’s not just about a talent show, it’s also about showing work that deals directly with the lives, histories, and the issues (the matters) of these black artists.
The goal for this exhibition is to provide an opportunity to develop dialogues throughout the greater Louisville and SoIN region. It is an opportunity for you to connect with these artists’ perspectives, insights, thoughts, ideas, and concerns.
The Carnegie Center for Art and History is a local history museum and contemporary art gallery. The Center offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy art works in a variety of media and to learn more about the process of creative expression through a range of exhibitions and programs for all ages.
