Advance Notice for April 8
Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable
Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable is a space for local activists to comment on the impact of state violence on Black lives through visual art. The Columbia City Gallery's latest installment showcases art by activists like Afam Ayika (who spoke out against the youth jail decision in February), and is curated by one of my favorite journalists, Naomi Ishisaka. Artists will be responding to the Trayvon Martin killing, the non-indictments in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner killings. Powerful stuff.
The gallery will open on April 8 and continue through May 17.
Editor's note and full, excited, disclosure: One of Atoosa's photographs is part of the exhibition.
The Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable Exhibit Opening, Wed, Apr 8, 5pm, Columbia City Gallery, 4864 Rainier Ave S, Free
