Presently in its fourth year, the Black Future Month 3016 Art Exhibition is the longest consecutive annual Black art exhibit in Toronto.

The exhibition serves as a professionally curated platform that consists of OCAD U students, alumni, staff and faculty along with selected artists from the Black community. This initiative was created in 2013 by OCAD U alumnus Danilo McCallum.

This year's exhibition will be spread between the Ada Slaight Gallery Space in 100 McCaul St. and the Graduate Gallery at 205 Richmond St. W., with another satellite location at the Art Gallery of Mississauga.

This year's exhibition features work from OCAD U's very own Tennesha Skyers, Camille Lauren, Sheniece Cater, Nathan Vernon, Kadicha Foster, Aaron Jones, Quentin VerCetty, Alecia Doley, Danilo McCallum with additional works from BLACK KIRBY (Stacey Robinson and John Jennings, Buffalo, NY) Maliciouz Art (Montreal, QC), Kalkidan Assefa (Ottawa, ON), Jabari “Eliscer” Elliott, Yannick Anton, Mosa McNeilly (Guelph, ON), Wolf J. McFarlane, Anthony Gebrehiwot, OBUXUM, and Black Toronto 2116.

The performance will take place across campus, from 113 McCaul to 100 McCaul Street, utilizing a number of studios, workshops, outside spaces, and materials.
