The exhibition Sharing Our View: 25th Anniversary celebrates Buffalo’s rich, intergenerational history of black artists who have cultivated a longstanding legacy of connection, community, and collaboration through their artistic practices. Inspired by a 1998 exhibition at the Center guest curated by Buffalo artist, educator, and curator John Baker, the exhibition features historic artists from the original show alongside contemporary artists who stand upon their shoulders. Central to both the 1998 exhibition as well as the 25th-anniversary celebration is an intention to bring the work, lives, and influence of these artists directly into the community to inspire new audiences. Recognizing this intention and in conjunction with the exhibition, the featured artists participated in a recorded roundtable discussion where they engaged in a reflective conversation about their experiences. Moderated by Burchfield Penney curator Tiffany Gaines and Brother Clifford Bell, the group also shared their insights with a group of high school students that participated in the exhibition’s corresponding community mural project. Join us for a special screening of the video of this important discussion, produced by Legacy House with Creative Connect, and don't miss your chance to experience the Sharing Our View: 25th Anniversary exhibition and learn more about the participating artists. Many thanks to artist Jalen Law for envisioning and catalyzing this discussion.
