Constitution Hill & Amacreatives, in association with Afropunk, bring you A New Black - a multimedia group exhibition & dialogue focusing on the individual voices of 5 upcoming contemporary artists and how they employ their artistic agency to engage with and interpret the colonial narrative that forms part of their history. It’s call for an artistic protest - a creative riot - to reimagine new definition(s) of blackness. It’s a disruption of the status quo; a defiance of stereotypes that continue to shape & frame ideas around blackness. A New Black is the emergence of a unique calibre of black creatives aiming to shift perspectives on what it means to be a black artist in a constantly changing 21st Century Africa.

The exhibition will run from 14 Dec 2017 to 12 January 2018 & will be open to the public during the Afropunk festival.

Join us for an evening of meaningful dialogue, art & music.
