Black Creators' Month


  • OCAD University 100 McCaul Street Toronto, ON, M5T 1W1 Canada

Black Creators’ Month: A combination of exhibition and programming that explores the multifarious ways of being Black in Canada in 2017. Canada celebrates its 150th “birthday” and with that, we come to ask the question, “What does that mean for those of us who have our histories rooted in other parts of the world, those of us who have settled in this land but have not been considered settlers, the BLACKS OF CANADA?” With all the years of Confederation, how have we, as a people, come to decolonize ourselves?

The exhibition, curated by OCADU BLXCK ASSOCIATION members, Khadijah Morley and Maisha Marshall-Ende, features 28 Artists who explore the meaning of Blackness in Canada in the year 2017 through visual culture. The exhibition will be spread throughout multiple locations on the OCAD University campus: the Main Lobby at 100 McCaul St., the Ada Slaight Gallery on the 2nd Floor of 100 McCaul St. and the Open Gallery at 49 McCaul St.
