Nothing like a three-day weekend 👌 .
This work was featured in our 2016 #GoshkaMacuga exhibition. Macuga creates large-scale tapestries that “weave” people together in their reimagining of demonstrations, public assemblies, and meetings of minds.

#EmoryDouglas was born #OTD in 1943.
Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist of the #BlackPanther Party and subsequently became its Minister of Culture, part of the national leadership. Throughout the ’60s and ’70s, Douglas made countless artworks, illustrations, and cartoons. All of them utilized a straightforward graphic style and a vocabulary of images that would become synonymous with the Party and the issues it fought for.

This summer's art and social justice residency and exhibition, "The Black School x Kameelah Janan Rasheed," opened today ❤️ #TheBlackSchool has created a classroom for art-making workshops rooted in creative activist tactics (including this deck of cards). Meanwhile, #KameelahJananRasheed has devised a hybrid resource room with text, objects, and video, as well as a library equipped with a xerox machine for the public to use.
Check our site to learn about (and sign up for!) the many workshops and programs that The Black School and Rasheed have planned.

#SANAA, the firm that designed our building, chose to use a stacked-box construction so as to blend in more with the neighborhood. A tall, monolithic building, they thought, would disrupt the feel of the Bowery.

#AaronFowler creates artwork from unconventional materials and discarded objects found on the street (in this case, that includes a Shell sign, seat cushions, and a hair weave). Each work illustrates a poignant subject or event that holds significance for the artist.
His installation "Bigger Than Me" is on view in our storefront window through August 19.

“If you see the cynical aspect in my work, great. If you see my work as funny stories, I’m fine with that too.”

Thanks for everyone who came to see #7on7nyc (or followed along online!)
Here's a clip from @cwynars and @cierrasherwin's collaboration—a #makeup tutorial video. The pair presented it alongside examples from the past and present of beauty advertising, as a way to probe beauty standards throughout modern history—from Kodak’s early color balancing to today’s YouTube beauty influencers.

In this painting, #2018Triennial artist Chemu Ng’ok depicts African braiding, an intimate, intergenerational routine in which mothers, aunts, and older siblings take on the role of hairdresser. The scene Ng’ok paints is typical of a Kenyan household or a salon. Under the nimble fingers of one’s elders, cultural norms and disciplinary measures are transmitted.
Just over a week left to see the 2018 Triennial (and Ng'ok's paintings) one last time!

In "This Lemon Tastes of Apple," (2011) #HiwaK and guitarist Daroon Othman improvise a musical performance in a street demonstration against government corruption demonstration in Kurdish Sulaymaniya in 2011.
Because their performance was not planned, Hiwa K did not film it, but was able to gather footage from a cameraman who, several years later, was captured by ISIS militants.
See this video and more of Hiwa K's work in "Blind as the Mother Tongue," on view through July 19.
