The ceremonious act of graduating from an institution is a symbolic and momentous occasion for many immigrant parents and their offspring. Unfortunately due to survival we’re socialised to think “the arts” typically do not fall into the category of a legitimate career path. We’re determined to reclaim the “graduation” process and remodel it into something accessible for all as well as truly beneficial.
The BBZ BLK BK: Alternative Graduate Show challenges what it means for artists to identify as they do and also what the qualities of the work are beyond its Blackness and its Queerness.
