The voices of black artists reverberate through history from ancient times. They cannot be ignored. No longer absent from historical records, they continue to speak independently through media of visual art, music, and literature. The process of selective filtering has been practised in art throughout history and has rendered the black artist as invisible and without credible skill or talent. The fact that works of notable black artists of the past have been excluded from mainstream art galleries for centuries highlights a form of abstraction. Today the works of many eminent Black artists are recognized as historically significant contributions and have taken their place beside other influential artists. The works in this exhibit are the narratives of The Artists of Colour.
