When the world is destroyed, someone must remake the world. I think you’d call that art.

What is Black Art worth to you? 

On January 26th, Buy My Soul And Call It Art, a performance art experience, will premiere in Durham, North Carolina.  With a team of over 30 local artists, this immersive exhibition will explore the relationship between Black performance and mainstream arts spaces, the emotional labor of Black artists, the importance of Black joy and the connection between the slave market and the arts market.

invest in Black art

I am raising $6000 to produce this work. It is integral that every team member receive a financial contribution for their labor and that this piece remain accessible for all. 

I believe that Black art, Black performance, Black creation and Black life is valuable. And I know that you do to.
