A new online exhibition dedicated to Black artists and works has been recently launched on Christie’s. The selling exhibition titled SAY IT LOUD (I’m Black and I’m Proud) is curated by 24-year-old New York-based curator and art adviser, Destinee Ross-Sutton, and highlights over 40 works by 22 emerging and mid-career Black artists.
Ross-Sutton is known for curating works by Kehinde Wiley, Ghanian-born painter, Amoafo Boako, among others, as well as organizing multiple exhibitions at prestigious art spaces worldwide.
The works from the selling exhibition incorporate “deeply personal aspects of their immediate environment, elements of the past, utopian premises, spirituality and digital avenues, each of these artists use their mediums as guiding forces to construct images of identity- whether it be their own, that of a society, or that of an overlooked community- in order to empower voices that have traditionally been silenced,” as per the words by Christie’s.
The total value of the exhibited works is $400,000. SAY IT LOUD is running on Christie’s website until August 17. Check out the select works below.
