Prompted by the increasing emphasis on the digital world, this exhibition explores the symbiotic relationship between technology, identity, and evolving narratives. In the face of intersecting opportunities and oppressions these works ask important questions about how digital art can both reproduce and redefine complex notions of Blackness.

Born into a hyper-connected world, many of today’s young Black artists live with liberating social media platforms for self and artistic expression. Unlike traditional modes of visual art, contemporary digital art is widely considered a democratizing medium. In opposition to limitations of the past, it’s this generation’s fresh perspective on Blackness and use of digital art as a tool to reclaim, rewrite, and rethink history that reconnects us to an essential part of ourselves.
