INSIDE BLACK - ART SHOW (SEPT 2020) AND BOOK
INSIDE BLACK, is a dynamic concept in which the depth and meaning of the color black is explored through art, science and culture. This project includes a book and an exhibition. Black is loaded with associations throughout history referring to race, class, the human shadow side, the unknown and now Black holes. These subjects will be addressed INSIDE BLACK. INSIDE BLACK the exhibition investigates the meaning of black through painting, drawing, photography, a video-installation featuring New York rappers, and more. Whether it be about race, the darkness of night, or the stranger in ourselves, blackness is the invitation to open our minds. We are striving to contradict the negative connotations which we have been conditioned to believe about ‘what is black’ in Western society. The book INSIDE BLACK contains 33 chapters written by artists, poets, and visionaries from the Netherlands, Belgium and the USA, to give their take on what black means to them, personally and professionally.
