About the Exhibition Black on Black on Black on Black is an exhibition with interactive programming, co-created by the Black faculty at the School of Art & Design, that draws from lived experiences and Black speculation, featuring works across visual art and design, socially engaged practice, video, movement, and music. This exhibition and programming invites us to experience, explore, and reflect on Black identity, history, collectivity, healing, innovation, education, struggle, and joy. The exhibition will feature Black faculty in the School of Art & Design through the lens of the Black Quantum Future as proposed by Philadelphia-based activists and theorists Rasheeda Phillips and Camae Ayewa. The collaborative exhibition will explore Black identity, collectivity, positionality, healing, innovation, and education as explored via a multi-leveled/multi-dimensional immersive, critical, and openly reflective space. This re-visioning of the Faculty Exhibition recognizes the legacy of Black knowledge and production in ways that supports the ongoing efforts by the School of Art & Design, Krannert Art Museum, College of Fine and Applied Arts, and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign towards addressing and celebrating our unique diversity, equity, and inclusion. A lecture series, community conversations, sound installation, and a catalogue is planned in conjunction with the exhibition.
