Blackout: An Extension of Negro Propaganda Reception

An Extension Of Negro Propoganda Reception is an exhibition that brings together artists working in a range of mediums to position Blackness in the act of simply “being” to actively work toward liberation. Using Morgan Parker’s “Toward a New theory of Negro Propaganda” as a framing device, the exhibition conceptualizes a mutable space and manifests a “negro propaganda” that exists within the institution of MICA. Looking at MICA as an institution that has historically underrepresented Black bodies, and is working to shift this culture; we begin to ask where does the institution fall short in placing raw, true, narratives Blackness, and what are the radical ways in which we can place our humanity within a fractured history.
