Thesis Exhibition Curated by Geneviève Wallen (MFA Graduate Student in the Criticism and Curatorial Practice Master's Program)

March 6 – March 14, 2015
Reception, Friday March 6th, 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

We’ve been arguing for decades about identity and authenticity and who’s Black and who’s not and I want to yell above the din-Truce! – Touré

There Is Always More than What We Perceive is an exhibition project that explores the ways in which contemporary Toronto-based Black queer artists engage issues of identity, race, sexuality, gender and space in their art works. The selected artists namely Michèle Pearson Clarke, Abdi Osman, and Natalie Wood push against the confinements of an imagined authentic blackness that has been constructed around an assumed patriarchal and heterosexual ideology. There Is Always More than What We Perceive seeks to acknowledge different kinds of performances of Blackness in order to give latitude, freedom, and unbind Black identities.

Please join us for a performance by Natalie Wood on Friday March 6 2015, from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 pm followed by a reception from 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 pm at the Graduate Gallery, 205 Richmond Street West (at Duncan), Toronto.

There Is Always More than What We Perceive is made possible by the generous financial support of OCAD University, The State of Blackness, and Akasha Art Projects
