Black Shedding(s)

Featured Artwork: Salt Water Bodies, 2021-2022, Gouled Ahmed

Black Shedding(s) is a group exhibition where each artist's work comes together to tell a collective story. Through visual art, sound production, literary reflections, and educational resources, the viewer is invited into their own contemplation and conversation about diverse quests for liberatory transformation.

Black Shedding(s) highlights BCA's unwavering commitment to the intersection of arts and social justice and to amplifying the voices of artists from under-resourced communities—artists of color, women, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
