From A Place, Of A Place
The Meatpacking District BID and ARTNOIR are gearing up to present From A Place, Of A Place, a neighborhood-wide, five-part festival that will use art and performance to celebrate Black art, culture and commerce. The series will kick off on August 12 and run through the end of October.
The five-part series will launch with a large-scale sculpture titled WHENEVER/WHEREVER WE CAN by artist Olalekan Jeyifous, curated by Oshun Layne; gallery exhibition The Meeting Point curated by Danny Baez of ARTNOIR and REGULARNORMAL; followed by a multi-sensory live performance series Visions In Motion directed by Dario Calmese, and a curated Guide to the Meatpacking District that will shine a light on Black voices and businesses in the neighborhood.
The series will uncover narratives of Black culture, commerce and community, imagining the neighborhood’s future as a forum for uplifting diverse and impactful voices. Each aspect of the programming will share a common theme of looking future-forward while embodying four distinct pillars: Gathering galvanizes possibility, Imagination expands identities, Liberation unlocks possibilities, and Borders define history.
ARTNOIR is a nonprofit whose mission is to celebrate and highlight the works of creatives of color by catalyzing cultural equity across the arts and culture industries.
