Black Voices: An International Juried Video Exhibition
511 Avenue K
Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate Black voices – voices we believe matter year round. The video art exhibition, Black Voices, seeks to celebrate Black artists while deepening the understanding of Black history and magnifying the contributions people of African descent have made to the world.
Calling for artists of African descent to submit video art pieces of any theme, subject, or genre that are five minutes in length or less. Selected works will be divided into two, one month shows at LHUCA in February and March 2022. Each exhibition will open during Lubbock’s First Friday Art Trail, a free community art event that brings 5,000+ visitors per month. Cash prizes will be awards for Best in Show and Honorable Mention.
Juror: Adrian Armstrong
Adrian Armstrong is a multidisciplinary artist from Omaha, NE now living and working out of Austin, TX. His work expands throughout different mediums such as music, painting, and printmaking, but his primary medium of choice is ballpoint pen.
Armstrong’s work explores black identity and how the black body is perceived in predominantly White American spaces. He aims to portray what it means to be an African American living in modern America. Often using himself as an “every man” symbol, Armstrong’s work touches on topics such as depression within the black community, systematic oppression, and identity erasure; but on the other side of the spectrum explores, nostalgia, growth, and success.
Videos must be no longer than 5 minutes.
Black artists of all ages and locations welcome to apply.
